New York State, the Office of Emergency Management and the New York State Guard are supplying us with a limited number of filled sandbags. The Town of Hamlin will not discriminate, however we are asking that these sandbags are distributed to people who are elderly and/or people that are physically challenged. Residents that are not able to fill and place their own bags. We are asking for help to locate these people and to care for them.
In conjunction with this, we are asking for volunteer groups and neighbors wanting to help. Please contact us. The Town will keep a list of those that need help placing bags and we will get those names and locations to the volunteers.
We are just starting this and details change frequently. There will be a limit to the number of sandbags per residence. Contact the Highway Dept. at 964-2640 for scheduling and if you have further questions. Thank you for your cooperation and help. Working together makes us stronger as a community.
There has been refinement and continued expediting of the permit process for erosion prevention and remediation. If you are in a position to have this type of work done to protect your residence, please contact Cheryl Pacelli our Building Inspector at 964-8181 for the most up to date information and permiting assistance.
As the high water continues, help each other to endure what is before us. We emplore each beachfront community to band together and strenghten your efforts.
