PHOTO: A community that loves to give back will have a chance to do so once again during the start of August. The City of Rexburg is reaching out for volunteers as they begin repainting fire hydrants throughout the city.
Keith Davidson, the Public Works director, says the project is just some needed maintenance. "The paint fades, just like a house needs to be repainted. Same with fire hydrants. It protects them as well as just kind of refreshing them up so they're readily visible for our fire department when they're out on the fire," says Davidson.
It's not just the hydrants that need an update but after about 10 years, Davidson says they will be placing stickers on the storm drains to show where the water is going.
