Brock Geyen of CliftonLarsonAllen LLP walked Hammond village trustees through the highlights of the 2017 audit of the village's finances at the meeting Monday night, April 9. Geyen reported the general fund was in good shape as was the water utility while the sewer utility is improving but continues to lag behind. Trustees approved a bid for $3,490 from Asphalt Associates to stripe the village streets rather than have the work performed by Public Works as a way to save the money.

SMC ltd. was founded in 1988 and moved to Somerset in 1990. "I will never forget. Four of us came here (in 1990) and now I think, just in Somerset, there are over 600 people. The community has been extremely welcoming. I really appreciate everything the town does. Really the best help we get is so many good, hard-working families here and the kids that come through that system is what we benefit from.
