Inactive Meters

The requirement for a building permit to activate service for an inactive meter for non-development purposes only, HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED.  If a customer wants to install a meter to water plants on their vacant parcel, for example, there is no need for a building permit– AT THIS TIME. And, if a customer is developing the property, we will still require a building permit.   We are still requiring the county-assigned address in all situations. This notice is subject to change pending further Board Action.
