At their meeting Tuesday night, the Hamlet Town Board members learned that the storm water improvement project is almost complete. Paving will be done this week on Starke Street, Pearl Street, and Davis Street and the project should be done. Work has been ongoing to extend storm drains along those roads to alleviate a standing water issue in the old downtown area in Hamlet. The project came in under budget and the Board was able to use the extra funds, plus $15,000, to pave the roads after the drainage equipment was installed.
The Board also approved the closure of Hamlet Street for the Relay for Life event June 10th and 11th. The event will take place at the Starke County Fairgrounds and the road will be used as part of the walking path for the event.
The Hamlet Town-wide yard sale is this Saturday and Sunday, May 21st and 22nd, beginning at 8:00 a.m. both days.
