On Monday, when we emerge from this nasty bombogenesis weather event and temperatures rise back into the 20s and 30s, city government meetings, which have taken a little interregnum break, resume their usual schedule.
On Monday, January 8, at 4 p.m., Mayor Rick Rector holds his first public hearing on the amendment to Section 70-4 of the city code which will "permit dogs to be present at the Riverfront Park." The Common Council passed the amendment in December, and now it falls to Rector to sign it into law.
At 7 p.m. on Monday, the Common Council has its organizational meeting, at which Council president Tom DePietro will introduce his rules of order for the Council and announce the makeup of the standing committees and the creation and makeup of any new committees. The informal meeting for the month of January, at which new resolutions are introduced, follows the organizational meeting.
On Thursday, January 11, the Planning Board meets for the first time in the new year. It's not known what's on the agenda, but the meeting should be interesting just to see what new appointments to the board have been made. The board has three vacancies: Carmine Pierro's term is up; Tom DePietro's term is up, but he also cannot continue to serve because he is now Common Council president; and Amy Lavine is no longer on the board.
On Friday, January 12, at 10 a.m.,the Historic Preservation Commission has its first meeting for the new year. The HPC has one vacancy: Gini Casasco moved out of Hudson. A replacement for Casasco may or may not have been appointed by the time the HPC meets on Friday.
