The Village of Caledonia will begin operating out of its newly built Village Hall, 5043 Chester Lane starting Monday.
The old Village Hall, 6922 Nicholson Road, will close Friday so that village officials can move into the new building.
Construction on the $3.5 million building started in July. The project, however, has come in under budget, according to village officials.
The police, fire and highway departments will remain at the Nicholson Road location.
The current building was constructed in 1952 when the Village was a Town. In 2013, the Village Hall had a leaky roof, insufficient work space and is not being handicap accessible. The Village voted to repair the roof then, but the work space has continued to be insufficient as the village has grown.
