Davis Township Trustee Robin Latimer met with the Hamlet Town Board last night
to discuss details of the new firehouse, currently under construction east of the County Fairgrounds. A completion date of the end of May is expected, with focus on electrical and gas connections next week.
Discussions were held on such matters as transferring ownership of insurance polices, the telephone number (867-2221), and the age and life of current fire trucks and other equipment.
Testing of the water wells and water quality is expected to take place within the year. There are no immediate problems. The Water Department is working on its annual maintenance program.
The Street Department reported that the repair of weather-related potholes on the town’s streets will begin soon. “Pug” will be purchased from the County Highway Department.
