My neighbor planted shrubs all around the hydrant in their yard. Is that ok?

No. Apple Valley city ordinance requires that fire hydrants have a 3-foot clearance around them at all times. You are encouraged to talk with your neighbor about this, or are welcome to contact the Fire Department or Code Enforcement for assistance. Questions about obstructed fire hydrants can be answered at 952-953-2600 during regular business hours.
