The Hamlet Town Board this week received a report from Town Marshal Frank Lonigro III, who informed the board that his department in March made 51 traffic stops, responded to 50 calls, and made six arrests. He said the department is also working on getting a car repaired because the car battery regularly goes dead, and he said they suspect the accessory cables were to blame. The department will return the car to the business where the lights were installed and have them rectify the problem, and Lonigro said they will also fix the siren box.
Lonigro also told the board he is working on a number of activities for the town, such as CPR and basic AED classes. He said the classes will either be offered for free or they will hold a reserve fundraiser for $5 a person, and on top of that, he is considering a basic firearms safety class for the public.
He also said officials will soon be putting up reminders of town ordinances that will be enforced as the weather improves, and he plans to send out letters to remind residents of those ordinances.
