To the Residents of Oak Grove/Mohawk Community:
A recent fire in the community has brought attention to the fact that there is a need for a fire hydrant in the community. Currently, the closest hydrant is located at the Chalybeate Fire House. Unfortunately, a trip to the fire department can result in an additional 30 minutes per trip. The fire department attempted to contact the Edmonson County Water District and local Magistrate, Joe Durbin, for assistance--no assistance was available from either. The fire department was represented at Fiscal Court on October 26, 2015 to address this issue. No assistance was available from the court, either. This is the reason the fire department is seeking contributions to buy and install a fire hydrant in the community (location of which will be based on the water district's recommendation, with the fire department's consent).
The total cost is anticipated to be $2,000--this includes the purchase of the hydrant and installation from the water district.
