Keep Your Water Meter Pits Clear

The City of Longmont asks you to remember that as you shovel your sidewalks and driveways this winter, please take care also to keep your water meter pit cleared of snow. If you can’t easily walk to your meter from the street or alley, your meter reader can’t either. When you clear a path to your meter, it helps the reader more quickly and easily obtain an actual read, which keeps bills accurate and costs low. For more information, call Longmont Power & Communications at 303-651-8386.
