Hamilton Town Council Adopts Resolution for Train Hazmat Information Disclosure

Overview: In a recent Hamilton Town Council meeting, the adoption of a resolution supporting the US Department of Transportation’s proposal requiring railroads to maintain accurate electronic information about hazardous material shipments took center stage. This move by the council aims to enhance public safety by ensuring better awareness and preparedness in the event of a train derailment involving hazardous materials. The resolution, requested by the River Council and represented by Fred Acres, is part of a broader effort to hold rail companies accountable for the materials transported through the municipality.

Overview: In a recent Hamilton Town Council meeting, developments took place including the recognition of local residents for historic preservation, discussions on cannabis cultivation facilities, infrastructure projects such as sidewalk improvements and landfill site remediation, and the introduction of ordinances affecting the town’s budget and cap bank. Notably, the council also debated the potential use of a permeable cap for the landfill closure, a decision with significant cost implications.

Overview: In a move to curb environmental violations, the Hamilton Township Committee adopted ordinance 2063-2024, significantly amending the penalties for illegal dumping. This measure was a highlight of the recent committee meeting, which also included the approval of new business registrations, the appointment of officials, and discussions on local development and community projects.
