The Hamlet Town Council formally adopted the town’s 2019 budget Wednesday. It looks pretty similar to this year’s. The total budget is just over $467,000 for 2019. About $323,000 of that would be the town’s General Fund. The Motor Vehicle Highway Fund would be budgeted at $58,200, while the Park budget would be $11,900.
Council members Connie Bailey and Brian Earnest voted to accept the budget, while Council President Dave Kesvormas abstained. Hamlet’s 2019 budget now goes to the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance for final approval.
