MASSENA - Village residents are reminded to keep fire hydrants on their property readily available and not covered with snow or other debris.

Fire department Foreman Ken McGowan said the code enforcement office has already issued “a number” of citations to people who have covered hydrants while plowing or shovelling snow.

“This is against village code as well as dangerous for the neighborhood,” he said.

Section 162-5 of the village code states, “No person shall deposit any building material or other material of any nature near or in front of any hydrant or so as to prevent or obstruct free access to said at all times.”
