Determining the City Budget

Right now, it is budget season in the City of Hudson. The Board of Estimate and Apportionment, made up of the mayor, the Common Council president, and the city treasurer, is meeting with department heads to determine the city's budget for 2019. In the past, these workshops were held in private, with only aldermen invited to attend. This year for the first time the public can be present to observe the workshops, which take place at City Hall. The workshops for the Department of Public Works, the Police Department, and the Senior Center all happened last week, but the workshops continue this week and next week.

The schedule for today, Monday, September 24, is:
  • 2:30 p.m. Assessment
  • 3:15 p.m. City Clerk
  • 4:00 p.m. Parking Bureau
The schedule for Wednesday, September 26, is:
  • 3:00 Code Enforcement
  • 4:00 Fire Department
If you're curious to witness the process that determines how your property taxes are spent, show up for a workshop or two.
