Josh Kleinbaum New apartment buildings in Glendale might have all of the state-of-the-art fixings -- high-speed Internet, digital cable, the works. Just don't expect rent to include water. A new city ordinance, introduced to City Council on Tuesday and expected to be approved next week, would require new apartment buildings in the city to have separate water meters for each unit, meaning individual tenants would pay their own water bills. Some older buildings have one meter for the structure, with water costs included in the monthly rent.

Glendale Water & Power has reached the halfway mark of installing high-tech smart meters — which officials say puts the utility on track to be the first in the nation to have a fully operational “smart grid” system. Full-scale installation of the 120,000 electric and water meters, which will allow two-way communication with the utility and let customers track real-time water and electric usage, began in December and is expected to be completed by summer. “We are 50% of the way to a smart-grid system foundation that will provide many benefits to our customers and our utility,” General Manager Glenn Steiger said in a statement.

CITY HALL — Glendale Water & Power on Tuesday announced a $4.2-million contract for the installation of more than 100,000 smart utility meters that track real-time water and energy use. Utility Partners of America will install 84,500 electric meters and 33,400 water meters for all Glendale Water & Power customers, with most of the work scheduled to take place by early fall. Crews will first test the meters in three areas — near City Hall, Montrose and near the Glorietta Substation in north Glendale — to gauge how the technology will work in different parts of the city.

GLENDALE — Crews installed the first round of smart utility meters Thursday, the first visible sign of a massive citywide project that will put customers in greater command of how much energy they use, officials said. Utility crews plan to install 1,500 smart meters this week, providing customers with real-time details on water and energy use. The meters, which were provided free of charge, were placed throughout central Glendale as well as in the Rossmoyne neighborhood.

CITY HALL — Glendale and Burbank may have been among an elite few who were awarded up to $20 million in federal money for their smart-grid projects, but they’ll have to put up the matching funds to get them, officials said Tuesday. Glendale and Burbank were the only cities in Los Angeles County to receive a share of the $3.4 billion in stimulus funding allocated last week by the Department of Energy to support energy-efficiency projects nationwide. Utility officials plan to use the funds to support their respective projects to install “smart” utility meters that track real-time water and electricity usage and allow for two-way communication with customers.

Glendale and Burbank residents can expect to see their gas bills increase by up to $2 per month through 2017 as the Southern California Gas Co. rolls out a $1-billion digital upgrade for meters serving 6 million customers. “Data collection units” that look like 25- to 45-foot-tall light poles will also set up throughout the cities. About 18 are slated for Glendale - most of which will be in the northern part of the city - and seven may come to Burbank, according to the utility.

We all know that the economic recovery for Glendale, like all of California, isn't progressing as quickly as we would like, and money is in short supply, but the proposal by Glendale Water & Power to adjust water rates is both timely and necessary. More importantly for the City Council's consideration, it's also remarkably fair. My first exposure to the aging water infrastructure came from Adams Hill residents whose homes were built on lots divided in the 1950s without direct access to water mains.

Ever since I began writing about the Glendale Water & Power smart meters, I have received letters from fellow citizens who are likewise frustrated and curious as to the exact reasons why their utility bills have gone up. I count myself among those individuals, although to say I'm surprised that my bill went up after the meter was installed could hardly be described as leaving a curious taste in my mouth. I'd describe it more like expected resignation with subtle notes of chocolate and “what the heck”!

When my L.A. Times is delivered, the first section I read is, of course, the Glendale News-Press - to keep abreast of local issues and local folks in the news. And one section of personal interest is the police report - not that we have major crime occurring, but it's a curiosity of mine to be aware of what's happening in my neighborhood. Police Chief Ron DePompa and his team have continued to make our community a safer one. His realignment to a four-quadrant community policing type of coverage is one factor which I believe has led to continued low statistics.
