Hamlet Police Department Cracking Down on Garbage

The Hamlet Police Department is demanding the cleanup of certain properties. Town Marshal Clint Norem told the town council Wednesday that he’s identified a list of questionable properties and will be hand-delivering notices on Monday.

He said the time-line is meant to coincide with a cleanup event the town is planning. Hamlet will have a dumpster available for its residents to use the week of May 6. Norem said those who still haven’t cleaned up their properties at that point may be issued a citation.
