Contois said while the water company would have no objection to the jury asking for bids and purchasing Ihe fire hydrants for installation, the company did want to limit the purchase io one. of two makes to facilitate the problem of maintaining replacement parts. Another saving could pnssihly be realized by the jury's removing and replacing blacktop or concrete streets and sidewalks where ttie hydrants were installed, Contois said.
