Putting outlet at temp panel?

Just got a piece of property out in the sticks. Previous owner had started some earth moving for foundation and water supply. Other than that nothing on the property. On the road at the pole, which sits on the property line, is a metal sheathed drop going underground. It goes over 5ft to a double sided temp panel. Each side has a meter and under that a 200amp panel with none of the punch outs gone. Like the 2nd pic.

The neighbors side is active and running a meter, our side is blank. The neighbor has a line running underground 30ft to another post with outlets on it. The neighbor on the other side of us has a waterproof outlet mounted directly under the meter/panel. We already have to get the state inspector out to check the place before they will give us a meter so we thought about running a single GFCI like the other neighbor, mounted to the box under the meter/panel on a 30amp breaker. So it is there when the inspector comes out. Any thoughts? Any tips on how best to do this?

I was just going to go terminal adapter, to 6"-8" pvc, to 20-Amp Temporary Power Panel. Or is it better to just get a GFCI with a weatherproof cover?

Sounds like an Electrcian call is needed.
