Village of Kinderhook

Village Governance
The Village of Kinderhook is governed by an elected Village Board consisting of a mayor and four trustees. Like many rural areas of the nation, these are not professional politicians, nor are they professional administrators. In the American tradition of citizen government, they are regular folks who believe that they have something to give back to their home community. Beyond the elected members of the Board, the Village has four paid employees who run the day-to-day operations of the Village. Business is conducted at the Village Hall, located at 6 Chatham Street. The Village Board meets at 7:00 P.M. on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

The Village Board depends on volunteer committees to review subdivision plans, consider environmental matters, conduct public hearings on zoning issues, and coordinate recreational activities. These volunteers contribute to the quality of life in Kinderhook by giving their time and energy to benefit our community. See the monthly calendar for the meeting dates and times for the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Recreation Commission, Economic Development Committee, Climate Smart Committee and the Historic Preservation Commission. All of these groups are appointed by the Village Board.
