A Very Long Legal Committee Meeting

Gossips had other pressing business to attend to last night and as a consequence missed the Common Council Legal Committee meeting, which went on for more than an hour and a half. The indefatigable Dan Udell, however, was there, and his video of the meeting, during which the topics of sidewalks (00:00); short-term rentals (23:00); the revaluation (1:13:29); parking (1:17:08); and tax exemption for not-for-profits (1:31:02) were discussed, can be viewed here.

  1. Though not on the agenda, I appreciated chairman Rosenthal giving me the opportunity to explain the reasons for petitioning the Mayor and Common Council to immediately reverse the conclusions of the "reval" (minute 1:15). In fact, the assessments were mentioned throughout the evening's other discussions (especially BnBs and sidewalks where the outrageously inequitable increases in property taxes threaten to drive out what's left of Hudson's middle-class. Send me your email and I'll be glad to send you a petition and a copy of the "six reasons for signing" it.
