We've got about 500 hydrants in our district. They are otherwise maintained by the water company, except of course when it snows
We ask property owners to shovel them out, but we do mark them with orange flag posts in the fall. After a snowstorm, we usually arrange for crews to go out with the trucks to check and shovel them out.

The people who have hydrants on their property are supposed to shovel out the hydrant. But we ride around anyway after a storm to check and if not do it ourselves.
The statements above are my own opinions
