The water project is about to be wrapped up. The water tower has been painted with the town name and a bulldog. I can see it from the bridge as I am coming home from Paducah shopping. Personally, I would not have been up there painting. Danger is not my middle name, and I don’t think I would bounce like they do in cartoons.
There was one little hydrant on Baynes Street that was overlooked. I can remember walking my dog that way and seeing the hydrant leaked. At that time, I told the city worker about it, but he said all the water would have to be turned off in the city to fix it, and they might not have the parts. This was years and years ago.
I drove by last week and here was the same old hydrant — all alone and forgotten. It was mentioned in the last mayor’s report that the hydrant had been overlooked, and it would be attended to, which was why I drove by. I suppose that shall be the final touch of this $2.5 million project.
Then it is on to the sewer/drainage problem.
