The public meeting for the fire hydrant project for Lake Dunlap has been postponed one week until \ug 20 The fire department has deter mined that there has not been ade quate publicity for a meeting this week
Because of the potential import of this project, the Tropine wants to br mg the uninformed up to speed on the project
In .January Ken Jordan, the assis tant fire chief of Lake Dunlap met with the board of directors of Green Valley Water Supply Corp concern ing the possiblity of having fire hydrants installed in the area Green Valley was very supportive of the endeavor
The fire department began the pro ject in an effort to improve fire pro tection. reduce homeowner in surance premiums and hopefully im prove the contributions and par ticipationof area residents
Basically the program is planned to be a joint effort of local residents and Green Valley Watet Supply Corp The purchase and installation of hydrants would have to be paid for by the residents who will benefit by ‘he addition to the water sy stem The more families a hy drant would serve ‘he lower the cost per family for in
stallation as the cost of each hydrant would be shared by the homes it would service Actual cost per hydrant would vary but probably would average $1500.00 per unit The cost mas at first glimpse seems high howevei the overall sav ing* is impressive A majority of the homes serviced by Lake Dunlap VED are eligible for a rural rate that provides compute tion of home owners insurance premiums exactly the same as homes within the city limits of New Braunfels, providing an approved fire hy drant is located within 500 feet of the residence The potential sav mgs to a homeowner can be substan tial One homeowner reported that their home, which was insured by a large company that specialized in military officers, would realize a reduction from $705 to S ’*45 per year simply because of the fire hydrant Other similiar reports have been received by the fire department The first public meeting on this project will be designed to answer questions and organize the effort w ithin the community If public support is strong enough the fire department hopes to start in stallation by late September Initially. the more densely populated areas have been planned, but this does not preclude simultaneous installations in more rural areas
Hie LDL KH strongly urges all residents to attend the public meeting on Aug 20 at 7 p rn Also, before the meeting contact your insurance agent and find out the effect i hydrant would have on your individual policy The fire department would like this nformation to be shal ed at the me mg
Representatives of Green Valley VSater supply local insurance agents and realtors will be in attendance to answer questions
Please make plans now to attend this important public meeting at the Lake Dunlap Fire Station on Potthast Drive
