HAMILTON TOWNSHIP (MERCER)– This morning, Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin along with Hamilton Fire Chief Richard Kraemer unveiled the Hamilton Township Fire Division plaque.

The Hamilton Township Fire Division was established on January 1, 2021. Previously, Hamilton consisted of nine independent Fire Districts governed by five elected commissioners with their own individual budgets. After a lot of long, hard work, the fire departments consolidated and became the Hamilton Township Fire Division funded by municipal taxes.

The plaque is dedicated to all those involved in the process of the consolidation.
