Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead

This week's meetings are concentrated in middle of the week--Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

  • On Tuesday, January 15, the Finance Committee of the Common Council meets at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall. At the last Common Council meeting, Alderman Rob Bujan (First Ward), who chairs the Finance Committee, announced that the committee will be discussing a strategic plan for municipal finances going forward.
At 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 15, the Common Council holds its regular monthly meeting. It is expected the Council will vote on a revised resolution for the sale of 427 Warren Street.

  • On Wednesday, January 16, the Common Council Public Works and Parks Committee meets at 5:15 p.m. at City Hall. As always, the meeting will feature a report from DPW superintenent Rob Perry.
At 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 16, the Zoning Board of Appeals holds its monthly meeting. No agenda is yet available for the meeting, but the ZBA may once again take up the request for area variances for proposed new construction on Partition Street behind 17-19 Union Street. 
Note that the times of the Public Works and Parks Committee and the ZBA meetings have been corrected since this post has first published. The PW&P Committee meets at 5:15 not 5:30; the ZBA meets at 6:00 not 6:30. For more information, see "Conflict Over the Third Wednesday of the Month."
  • On Thursday, January 17, the Hudson Housing Authority is holding a special meeting at 5:00 p.m. Because of the "robust discussion" at the HHA board's monthly meeting last Wednesday, the board, after going into executive session to discuss the Master Development Agreement (MDA), decided to postpone voting on the resolution to approve the MDA. The vote will take place at this special meeting on Thursday. It will take place in the Community Room at Bliss Towers and is open to the public.
At 6:00 p.m., HHA is expected to present its plans to construct seventy-six units of new Section 8 housing on State Street to the Common Council Economic Development Committee. That meeting takes place at City Hall.


  1. according to city website, DPW meeting is at 5:15 on wednesday, not 5:50. Are we sure of the location, city hall, since, as far as I can tell, it says nothing about location on website (for DPW or any department meeting)?
