Hamlet Council Finalizes Water Rate Hike


Water rates will soon be going up for Hamlet residents. The Hamlet Town Council approved updates to the town’s water rate ordinance Wednesday.

The new monthly rate is $5.43 per 1,000 gallons for up to 5,000 gallons, going down to $2.17 for over 15,000 gallons. Clerk-Treasurer Kristina Pitts says the new rates will likely take effect on the bill due May 10.
