Paint the town red

George Korkofigas paints a fire hydrant on S. Highland Ave. in Oak Park, Thursday. Korkofigas said he will personally paint 500 of the village’s hydrants this year, with plenty more to come next year. He estimates the village has more than 2,000 hydrants. The hydrants had gone years without a touch up and recently were sandblasted and a primer was applied. Korkofigas uses a sprayer to complete the process with a final coat of bright red, high performance, acrylic paint.
