Emilia Teasdale in The Columbia Paper reports that Kinderhook will sell the former Town Hall and surrounding parkland in Niverville if a bill passes in Albany this week before the legislative session ends. "A small group of Kinderhook residents," according to the paper, spoke out against selling the park at a recent town meeting. “We are in need of parkland in the town,” said resident Marsha Anderson. Kinderhook Supervisor Pat Grattan said it was too costly to maintain the building, which will be sold for a residence if the legislature approves, and pointed out the town park on State Farm Road. The next Kinderhook board meeting is at 7 p.m., Monday, June 8 at at the Martin H. Glynn Municipal Building. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
