Hydrant Rental Case

Hydrant Rental Case

The city of Livingston, Mont., was made defendant in a suit in which the Livingston Water Co. seeks to recover $45,350 alleged to be due for hydrant rental. The city and water company became involved in a dispute in 1912 over the hydrant rental, the city offering $35 per month for each hydrant while the company claimed $100 as provided in the original contract between the water company and the city. Mayor Viet stated that after the filing of the suit, the Supreme Court of the State had ruled that the company has no contract with the city, and therefore cannot held the city to the contract price for hydrant rental.
