Of interest among the other issues was the resolution authorizing "the conveyance of real property and two utility easements to the Hudson City School District." The real property in question is 1.277 acres adjacent to Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School, and the need for the property and the utility easements is related to the proposed addition to the building. According to the resolution, "the fair market value of the property has been determined to be $7,094.00," and the resolution authorizes giving the land to HCSD, and in exchange "the School District shall credit the City of Hudson the sum of $7,094.00, to be utilized to offset the present and future charges related to the City of Hudson Department of Youth's use of School District facilities."

Although the revised local law creating a lodging tax in Hudson was only placed on the aldermen's desks at the informal meeting on March 13, and Andy Howard, counsel to the Council, had advised that the law would have to "ripen" for ten days before the Council could vote to enact it, last night, the Council voted on it anyway, after only eight days. Mayor Tiffany Martin Hamilton has scheduled a public hearing on the law, before signing or vetoing it, for Tuesday, April 4, at 4:00 p.m. at City Hall.
