Questar to Paradise: Don’t pretty up those gas meters

PARADISE–The Town Council voiced concern to Steve Krebs, area manager for Questar Gas, about landscaping around gas meters in residents’ yards. Councilman Don Snyder said he had been told that he wasn’t allowed to cover up pipes entering the gas meter from the street.

Krebs confirmed that citizens are not supposed to cover pipes connecting to meters or landscape around them because it makes them difficult to access and service. “It’s a hard thing to monitor and check because we don’t read meters door to door anymore,” Krebs said.

Krebs and the council agreed that Paradise citizens need to be made aware about the policy regarding landscaping around gas meters.

In other business, the council approved a building permit for a new home in the area and stressed to the potential home builder that he not fill in the driveway swells.
