The Town is looking for residents, business owners, farmers, and all interested persons to volunteer to fill committee seats.
There are three areas that need to be addressed.
1) The Town of Hamlin Comprehensive Master Plan. We have an existing plan now. It is out of date and needs to be reviewed and updated.
2) The Town of Hamlin LWRP (Local Waterfront Revitalization Program). We have an existing plan now. It does need to be reviewed and updated.
3) The Town of Hamlin Farmland Protection Plan. We do not have a plan at this point so this committee will be starting from scratch. This is very important to protect the industry that is the backbone of our town.
These are very important guidance documents for the Town. Having these documents in place will help us shape the future of the Town. They are used in making decisions involving governing, planning and zoning.
Please consider taking part in shaping the future of the town you live in. We ask that you be a resident of the Town, and/or own a business in Hamlin.
Contact the Hamlin Town Clerk, Kathi Rickman at 964-2421 to express your interest and provide your contact information.
We anticipate starting right after the 1st of March, 2019.

There have been concerns brought to the attention of the Building Department that many of the sandbags that were placed on properties during the flood event of 2017 are now deteriorating to the point that the bags themselves are compromised due to weather exposure and are shredding and pieces are blowing around. It is asked that all residents check their sandbags and to remove/replace them as necessary.
The historian center will be open on Thursdays from 3p-6p throughout the Fall.
The Town of Hamlin will no longer be accepting any tube televisions and monitors at our locations, which are 91 Rail Road Avenue and 4180 Brick Schoolhouse Road. It costs the town .20 cents per pound to recycle them. Sunnking in Brockport accepts them for free. We apologize for any inconvenience.
