Fire Hydrant Service
Effective around March 1, the
approximately 667 customers of
the Louisville Water Company in
the Buechel area will be charged
for fire hydrant rental. The fee
will be 30 cents a month per customer.
This was decided Monday by
the board of the company which
took over the customers January
1 from the Buechel Water District
when 80 per cent of the district
""'s annexed by the company. The
echel district had never charg
ed for the hydrant service.
Directors of the water company
said customers in other areas of
Jefferson County pay for the service so it would only be fair to
charge residents of Buechel. They
added that regular water rates are
less than those charged by the
District. There are 78 hydrants
in the area.
