A vibrant downtown area surrounds the Village Green with numerous restaurants, specialty shops, a movie theater, a live theatre house, a coffee house, the Colgate Inn, and the Colgate University Bookstore. Many consider Hamilton be a little city as we own and operate our own municipal electric and natural gas utility, police and fire departments as well as an airport with a 5,300-foot runway and an adjacent industrial park that is zoned for light industry, service, and professional office buildings.

Through the support of Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand in the US Senate and the efforts of Congressman Brandon Williams, who initiated the process in the House of Representatives, the Village of Hamilton has been approved to receive $1M in congressional funding for our Route 12B water infrastructure improvement project. We are so grateful for the support of our political leaders and their understanding of local issues.

When the DOT refurbishes our 12B corridor, the Village anticipates replacing water and sewer pipes that are 100 years old. This is an immense project and this grant will  help lessen the burden on our taxpayers.
