Burn Permits - Fire Department issued Open Burning Permits are now available online! Open burning will be from January 15, 2020, through May 1, 2020, as in year’s past. Each day during the open burning season, permit holders will need to register online on days they want to burn. You can find directions on the town website by going to the Fire Department page in the related link section midway down on the page. For anyone without access to a computer, permits can be processed at the station on a limited basis only.

The Hamilton Senior Center is open as a day shelter on Friday, March 9.

The building, at 299 Bay Road in front of the Public Safety Building, will be open until 5 p.m., when town officials will reassess the status of the power outages in town at that time.

Residents without power are encouraged to use the building to get a cup of coffee, charge their phone and stay warm.

Even though it is the Senior Center, it is, of course, open to all ages, emphasized Acting Town Manager and Police Chief Russell Stevens.
