Who is responsible for this? The Utility, City, or the Electrical Inspector, or Gas Inspector?

Based on the pic, it looks like the elec was "there first", and that's probably how they had the power "on". Then here, the blame would be the Plumbing AHJ, and the gas utility.

Here in my areas of NJ this would not fly. Some areas are PSE&G for both gas & elec. services, and they would not allow this install, neither would the Elec. AHJ. The state has three other power co's (GPU, and Atlantic Elec, and a small area covered by Orange Rockland), and there are a few gas utilities.

Makes you wonder if they even think about what they are doing. On the light side though the box doesnt look like it will open anyway. Or worse yet... would'nt close if you did open it!

Where's the incoming service? Does it come from inside the building?
What's with the silly ground rods?
The telephone cabinet looks like it's been there much longer than the 2 meters.
I should think that this would have been caught by any of the inspectors you mentioned, Joe...S
