Who takes care of the fire hydrants?

Fire hydrants are installed and maintained by the Green Bay Water Utility. Water customers pay a "Public Fire Protection" charge on their quarterly water bills. This money is not available to the fire department or used to pay for any service provided by the fire department. It is collected and used by the Water Utility to pay for the installation and maintenance of fire hydrants, as well as the water that is used to control fires in our community.
