Learn What the City Is Wishing For

At 6:45 p.m. today, immediately preceding the informal meeting, there is a special meeting of the Common Council. According to the calendar on the City of Hudson website, the purpose of the special meeting is "to consider a proposed resolution to approve the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application." This grant application was the subject of an abortive public hearing on May 30. The resolution authorizing the mayor submit the application requesting $600,000 for "sewer separation activities in the area of lower State Street and Lower Columbia Street" can be viewed here.

Some further exploration of the city website reveals that resolutions authorizing the mayor to submit two other grant applications will also be considered at this evening's special meeting: one for "Accessibility and Entrance Improvements to Promenade Hill Park"; the other for "Refurbishment of the 7th Street Park." Each of these grant applications is for $250,000.

UPDATE: Gossips just received word that the resolution authorizing the mayor to submit the grant application for "Accessibility and Entrance Improvements to Promenade Hill Park" has been withdrawn. The Common Council will not be voting on that resolution tonight.
