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.

 FILE - In this undated file photo provided by Raleigh/Wake City-County Bureau of Identification, Kelvin Melton is shown. A North Carolina prosecutor was the intended target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor's father instead, according to an indictment released Tuesday, April 22, 2014. Authorities have said the kidnapping was retaliation for Colleen Janssen's prosecution of Melton for his involvement in a 2011 shooting. Melton, a high-ranking member of the Bloods gang, orchestrated the abduction from behind bars using a cellphone, the indictment said.
