Following a successful fundraising event (in June) at 24 Seconds Bar & Grill (in Berkley), where owner Bob Bronstein generously donated $500 toward future projects, the Berkley Beautification Advisory Committee got back to work.
Three committee members painted all fire hydrants between Webster and 11 Mile on the west side of Woodward Avenue. With rust and faded yellow paint covering the hydrants, Dan and Anela Mihaescu along with Wayne Atfield brought them back to life. The vibrant yellow should catch the eyes of cruisers during the Woodward Dream Cruise, and give first responders a much easier time spotting a hydrant if necessary.
The committee plans on repainting additional hydrants throughout the city in the upcoming months.
