The meter is located by the sidewalk and the only thing stopping somebody from getting killed is cardboard.
How can somebody take the meter off and keep it off for months without the utility company finding out about it?
Should I report it? For safety reasons.
If I do report it. Would my sister and brother in law get into trouble?
The first question is the one the really puzzles me. All they have to do is walk by and see that the meter is off. It's only 3 feet from the sidewalk.
