Hamlet Town Board Considers Purchasing E. Coli Testing Equipment

Hamlet Town Board: Curtis Simpkins, Kerry Stone and Bob Yung

The Hamlet Water and Wastewater Operator, John Goble, has put in a request to the Hamlet Town Board to order equipment so the department can test for E. Coli. Goble currently takes water samples to LaPorte several times a month and the tests are run there. The Town pays $30 for the testing fee, plus mileage and labor. The Board will look into the request.

Officials from the Department of Local Government Finance will review the Town’s proposed 2012 budget in a workshop to be held this morning.
