Storm Cleanup Continues in Hamlet


Clean-up of the town’s streets, many filled with trees and limbs, from last week’s wind storm took up much of the discussion at the Hamlet Town Board meeting last night. The street department reported to the citizens in attendance that all streets are now open, and limb pickup will continue this week.

The town will begin its first 50-50 sidewalk replacement program soon. A number of applications were noted by the board Wednesday evening.

Plans were reviewed for the repair and replacement of the intersection of Starke Street and old U.S. 30 just north of the railroad tracks.

Other residents spoke to the needs of the town park when the three town board members first convened as the park board. Discussion was held on the repair and replacement of some of the playground equipment. Applications for members of the park board are being taken.
