On Tuesday, the Hamlet Town Board members signed a contract with H & G Underground Utility for the storm water improvement project during their recent meeting. The Board members also signed a notice to proceed with the project so work could begin at any time.
The Board approved a bid of $571,562 from H & G Underground Utility in December to improve storm drainage in the old downtown area of Hamlet. This new project will extend that storm drain into the area by Railroad Street on the north, Starke Street on the east, Pearl Street on the south, and Hamlet Street on the west. A short section will also be extended east along Davis Street next to the Post Office to relieve drainage.
