Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

If a single "city/town hall" feature is shared by two distinct municipalities, should a point be added for each?

For example, the town of Ossining, NY and the village of Ossining, NY are separate municipalities with distinct borders and different sets of officials. They share the same building as a combined "Village & Town Hall". Should they be given separate points for each municipality, consistent with other feature types such as schools and hospitals?

By contrast, the nearby municipality of Mount Kisco, NY is a single municipality of a hybrid type—that is, it is both a village and a town in one. This would receive only one feature point.

Because these two contrasting scenarios both exist in states like NY, it seems helpful to use two points when there are separate municipalities, and a single point when there is a single, consolidated municipality.

Correct, since there are two separate and distinct municipalities represented in this building, it can be labeled with two separate points: one for the town hall, and one for the village hall.
