Fire hydrants out of order

To the editor:

It has come to my attention that there are several fire hydrants throughout the village that are out of service. I am also informed that they have been out of service for several months, with unknown time frames to fix them.

I would like to know:

How many are there that are out of service?

When are they scheduled to be replaced?

Have residents nearby been informed of the fire danger?

Has the fire department been notified of their outage, and do they have a quick knowledge of the nearest hydrant?

Cordially,

Paul Moriarty

Saranac Lake

(Editor’s note: Saranac Lake Department of Public Works Superintendent Dustin Martin said village workershave repaired some of these hydrants recently and plan to fix the others soon.)
