FTLComm - Tisdale - August 6, 1999

Most of us do not have a fire hydrant in the middle of our driveway. This last house on the new block of Newmarket Drive has an interesting problem. Town planners asked the owner to reverse the plans of their house so that the driveway would be on this side of the house rather then on the North side but the owner did not want to do that.

The consequences are that with the fill and driveway in place the fire plug is now just barely above the surface and impossible to use in case of an emergency. subterranean
