Hamlet Council to Consider Revised Bids for Railroad Street Improvements, Adopt 2019 Budget

The Hamlet Town Council will make a second attempt tonight at choosing a contractor for Railroad Street improvements. Council members decided last week to give the three bidders a chance to revise their estimates, after the council decided to cut sidewalk work and tree removal out of the project. The town plans to apply for a Community Crossings grant to cover 75 percent of the cost, but the application has to be turned in by Friday.

In other business tonight, the Hamlet Town Council is expected to adopt the town’s 2019 budget. The proposal calls for a total budget of just over $467,000.

Tonight’s Hamlet Town Council meeting will take place at the town hall, following the 6:30 p.m. park board meeting.
