ELKHART — Mayor Dick Moore issued a reminder Friday, Jan. 10, asking residents and businesses to clear snow from fire hydrants.
City crews continue snow removal efforts, but Moore asked the residents pitch in to check hydrants and catch basins are clear of snow.
Hydrants should have a three-foot clearing around them to ensure firefighters can readily access them in case of emergency, Moore said.
