Fort Wayne neighborhood Associations are invited and encouraged to participate in City Utilities' fire hydrant painting program.  A fresh coat of paint can make the hydrants in your neighborhood easier for the Fire Department to fine -- especially in rainy weather or when there is snow on the ground.  City Utilities will pay your association $5 for every hydrant painted.  City Utilities will provid your associaiton with wire brushes for prepping the hydrants and with standard yellow fire hydrant paint.  Be sure to contact City Utilities before you paint any hydrants. Payment will only be made to neighborhood associations, not to individuals.  Please call 311 or (260) 427-8311 for more information and to get involved. Click here for more information
