Red Hook’s town and village Justice Courts have received grants of $6,485 to pay for computer equipment and painting of the town courtroom.
In a news release, Town Justice Jeffrey Martin said, “We are deeply gratified that we were able to obtain the funds for these important court enhancements at no direct cost to the Red Hook taxpayers.”
Town and Village Justice Jonah Triebwasser added, “These grants were a team effort. I thank the court staff – – court clerks Kathy Fell, Nancy Roberts and Lori Urbin — as well as the Town and Village Boards, and various members of the town and village staffs for their invaluable assistance in obtaining these funds.”
This is the fifth year that Martin and Triebwasser have obtained court grants. Since 2007, they have obtained more than $71,000 in grants, furniture and equipment for the Red Hook courts.
