Broken Park Meadows fire hydrant is slowly on the mend

A broken fire hydrant in the Park Meadows neighborhood is in the cue for repair. The public works department has ordered the part but it's on back order due to the delays in shipping after the pandemic slowdown.
A broken fire hydrant in the Park Meadows neighborhood is in line for repair. The public utilities department is on the case, but says the parts to repair it are on backorder due to the world wide shipping delays.

A fire hydrant in Park Meadows has been out of service for weeks. But don’t call the fire department - they don’t ‘do’ fire hydrants. 

A bright yellow sign that reads “out of service” hangs on a broken fire hydrant in the Park Meadows neighborhood. It’s located on the south side of Little Kate past Lucky John and has been broken for at least two weeks.

Fire hydrants are synonymous with fire engines and fire fighters. But according to Clayton Scrivner, a spokesperson for Park City Municipal, when a fire hydrant is broken the place to call is the city’s public utilities department.

Scrivner says that public utilities is aware of the Park Meadows fire hydrant and is working to repair it. The parts have been ordered, but as with many items in the world they’re taking longer due to the pandemic slowdown.

According to Scrivner there are enough fire hydrants in the area to put out a fire if that need arises before it’s fixed.

To report a broken fire hydrant, call public utilities at 435-615-5305.
