Have you seen or stumbled on one of those black rubber domes in the Glendale sidewalks?
For 100 years, American cities have constructed flat, non-skid sidewalks. Glendale has expended and continues to expend millions of dollars repairing and replacing uneven sidewalks. So why is Glendale Water & Power being permitted to install domed "smart grid meter" lids in our sidewalks?
A meter program official assured me that the meters can be read just as efficiently if a lid is flat. In fact, the utility has installed a flat lid for at least one homeowner who complained about the rubber bump in his driveway.
