CONGRATULATIONS.... You did it.....
Homeowners / lessees are responsible to maintain a clear area around any fire hydrants that are within 5 feet of their property. This includes snow. The Borough Ordinance that covers that is 104-7.
§ 104-7. Technical amendments, deletions and additions made in the Fire Prevention Code
C. Access to fire hydrants. To ensure access to fire hydrants in the Borough of Fair Lawn for the safety and welfare of the public, a clear area of five feet must be maintained in all directions from the hydrant as well as meeting the roadside parking requirements.
(1) The owner or lessee of any property within five feet of a fire hydrant shall be responsible to see that a five-foot clear space is provided in all directions from the fire hydrant. The requirements of this section shall be completed by the responsible party not later than 12 hours after any natural obstruction such as snow shall prevent access to the fire hydrant and within one hour of any other type of obstruction.
(2) Upon the failure of any person in maintaining the five feet clear space from all fire hydrants in accordance with Subsection C(1) hereof, the Fire Chief of the Borough of Fair Lawn may cause such space to be cleared in accordance with the provisions thereof, in which event all costs incurred by the municipality in connection therewith shall become a lien upon said lands and be added to and form a part of the taxes next to be assessed and levied thereon and shall be collected as other real property taxes.
Remember, the Borough Ordinance requires that the hydrant be clear in all directions....
......the sidewalk side of the hydrant is clear, but not the street side where the fire department (most likely) will use it........
hydrants......It's good safety sense......
