We are still delivering empty bags and bulk sand to those Hamlin Residents that call and request them. Please call the Hamlin Highway Department at 964-2640 to request sandbags.
I am publishing this to let everyone along the lake and areas affected by the lake our displeasure with the decision of the IJC to go ahead with their Plan 2014. All through the process the Town Board and I have been opposed to this. We have passed a resolution of opposition to 2014 and forwarded it to any party remotely involved. I contacted our representatives individually to voice our opposition. We will continue to express our feelings to any and all officials involved with the Plan and the level of the lake. This situation is just plain unacceptable and must be reversed. I am in contact with Leaders from other lakefront communities to present a unified voice of opposition.
The level of support that we are going to receive is very fluid at the moment. There are sandbags available at the Highway Garage. A program was announced yesterday to have convicts available to fill bags. We are working to acquire that service. I would encourage everyone to keep records to the extent possible. Foremost, the cost of damages. We don't know if there will be any reimbursement in the future so keep track. Photos of before and after are also important.
As time progresses and information is made available we will do our best to get it to everyone.
