An app that will map out all the fire hydrants in Prattsville will be created. This was approved at last week’s Prattsville City Council meeting.
The Rural Water Association will build the app.
This app is for firefighters to use. Council member Leslie Kervin said that this app will make it easier for the fire fighters to locate the nearest fire hydrant to a fire.
This cost $3,000, and there is a $20 monthly fee to maintain it.
Prattsville has 48 fire hydrants.
The council is also getting bids to upgrade the town’s water meters.
Kervin said that the current water meters are getting old. The town has between 450 and 500 water meters.
A new water meter will also have to be bought for the water plant. That meter has been damaged, and was not repairable.
The council also announced that the paving of Prattsville’s City Hall parking lot has finished, and that street repavings have also finished.
