Can someone tell me why we are all paying for the city to put in fire hydrants for a small portion of the Island? I was told I had to have a sewer connection because it was for the benefit of the entire Island, in particular, the health and safety of all. However, I had to pay for the installation including the pipes added in the road, not just to connect my house. Now I am being asked to pay to add the hydrants to areas of the island that do not affect me. I have 2 hydrants within 500 feet of my house and a 3rd within 1000 ft by GPS. I should not have to pay!!!If they want to add these hydrants, they should charge the home owners that will receive the benefit just like the STRP.
