The Athenian Oath
We will never bring disgrace to this our town, by any act of dishonesty or cowardice, nor ever desert our suffering comrades in the ranks; we will fight for the ideals and sacred things of the town, both alone and with many; we will revere and obey the town’s laws and do our best to incite a like respect in those above us who are prone to annul or set them at naught; we will strive unceasingly to quicken the public’s sense of civic duty, thus in all these ways we will transmit this town not only less, but greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.
If you are interested in serving on a town Board or Committee kindly complete an application and submit to the Town Administrator. Positions are currently opening on several committees and boards. Please see the attached list for particulars. Incumbents will also be considered.
The Department of Public Works Water Department tries diligently to ensure that Hatfield customers have clean, safe drinking water. To assist in this important work, homeowners should take steps to avoid water service interruption by keeping their water pipes from freezing. For example: Make sure windows in the basement are shut. Also, if your water service pipes pass under a plowed area such as a driveway, allow water to drip at a slow constant rate.
This year has been an historic year for extreme frost. Don’t think frozen pipes can’t happen to you. Please Call the Hatfield Water Department 413-345-0345 if you need guidance. A phone call could help prevent major repairs! Advice is free.
