Clarkson is a wonderful example of a community of good neighbors. Residents look out for each other, take pride in their homes and families, support local business and are a shining example of good, kind and caring people.

It's a pleasure to serve people in Clarkson. They're so appreciative and I enjoy hearing compliments about the highway staff for the work they do-- and it's especially gratifying for them after grueling round-the-clock snowplowing shifts or hours in the sun doing road work.

It's amazing the unique people I've met through my job in the town hall. Most recently I was invited to France by an engaging couple who visited our town hall. She is a town clerk and he is the Director of Finances in France and they wanted to compare responsibilities. What a wonderful time we spent visiting.

Clarkson Town Hall

The Clarkson Town Hall is the hub of the government in town. Located on the southwest corner of Ridge Road (Rt 104) and Lake Road (Rt 19) it houses  the offices of the supervisor, town clerk, assessor and the building coordinator. The town board, planning board, zoning board and conservation board hold their meetings here.

This town hall was erected in the late 1800’s and was later moved to it’s present site in the 1930’s.  It stands today much as it was back then. The first floor offices have been  updated as well as the meeting room to accommodate the needs of the world today. The lower level can be accessed either through the main floor stairwell or through the back door located off the parking lot. Visitors to the building department should use this entrance.

In the next year, as we prepare to celebrate our bi-centennial we’ll be sprucing up the building and adding a fresh coat of paint. There’s a special place in our hearts for this lovely building and all the history it holds.
