Monthly Gas and Water Meter Reading Comes to Long Beach
2010-08-04 · By Editor
As early as next week, Long Beach Gas and Water customers will begin benefitting from the City’s switch to a monthly meter reading schedule. For the past few months Corix Utilities, the company tasked with providing the new monthly meter reading service for the City of Long Beach, has been operating a pilot meter reading program in different areas of the City. With the pilot program being deemed a success, Corix will now take over full-time responsibility for reading all gas and water meters throughout Long Beach.
