Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead

If you're not attending the budget workshops to witness the 2019 city budget being crafted, the week leading up to Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples' Day weekend is a fairly light on meetings.
  • Today, Monday, October 1, the Tourism Board is holding a four-hour workshop at 1 North Front Street, beginning at 1 p.m. Although the public is not prohibited from attending, the workshop is not for the purpose of receiving public input. It is intended to be a working session for the board, which is still in the process of defining its goals.
  • Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 2, the Conservation Advisory Council meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall. The agenda, which can be viewed here, seems focused on the Open Space and Natural Resources Inventory the group has been working on, in preparation for presenting it to the public sometime next month.
  • On Wednesday, October 3, at 4:00 p.m., the mayor holds a public hearing on two local laws: Local Law No. 6, which amends Chapter 129 of the city code to conform with changes in New York State law and the Energize NY Benefit Financing Program, and Local Law No. 7, which establishes a Vacant Buildings Registry.
At 5:3o p.m. on Wednesday, the Common Council Youth, Education, Seniors, and Recreation Committee meets. No agenda has been published for this meeting, and there is no information about where the meeting will be held. Perhaps it can be assumed that, absent information to the contrary, the meeting will take place at City Hall.
At 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday, the Common Council Housing and Transportation Committee meets in the Community Room of the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street. There is no published agenda for the meeting, but at its previous meeting, the committee took aim at the problem of poorly maintained sidewalks in the city. HudsonValley360 reported that Alderman Tiffany Garriga (Second Ward), who chairs the committee, "suggested committee members speak to residents in their respective wards and identify the most damaged sidewalks that need immediate repair before the Oct. 3 meeting."
