At the end of last night's Common Council meeting, John Musall, First Ward Supervisor and husband of First Ward Alderman Geeta Cheddie, pointed out that there were "twenty-four dissenting comments about the LWRP on the City of Hudson website" and complained that it appeared "the people making the comments were speaking for the City itself." This he said was inappropriate. Whether Musall was objecting to having the comments on the city website at all or was asking for them to be more clearly identified wasn't clear to me, but his statements raise the same question as statements like this from the LWRP: "The City supports plans proposed by Holcim (US) and its tenant to reroute dump truck traffic from the Holcim mine in Greenport, New York to the deep water port via the South Bay causeway." Just who is "the City"?
You can find written comments that were submitted about the draft LWRP, including Common Council President Don Moore's letter to the mayor, on the City of Hudson website.
