Aliya Schneider reports for Columbia-Greene Media that Claverack Town Supervisor Clifford Weigelt said the town would put out a request for proposals to take down Claverack's town hall and court building. The town plans to build a new town hall and court building at 836 State Route 217. Over the summer it will move into an empty space of the former Claverack Free Library building at 629 Route 23B while the new town hall is built. Claverack town officials say they will look for federal COVID-19 relief funds to finance the new construction. Councilperson Katy Cashen said, as the board discussed how many kitchens the new building should have, "Our ideas a great for the new building, but I think we need to make this a public process where we really get input from people."
