Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead

As Hanukkah continues, and we move closer to Christmas, here's what's happening in the week ahead.
  • On Monday, December 14, the Tourism Board holds a special meeting at 5:00 p.m. The link to the Zoom meeting should be posted on the City of Hudson website later today. Scroll down to the calendar.
  • Also on Monday, December 14, Citizens Climate Lobby holds its chapter meeting at 6:00 p.m. The meeting is an opportunity to learn about a carbon drawdown project happening here in Hudson. There will be a discussion of regenerative farming/soil carbon sequestration with Andy Bicking from Scenic Hudson and Matt Sheffer from Hudson Carbon.   
  • On Tuesday, December 15, the Common Council Finance Committee meets at 5:30 p.m. and the full Council holds its last meeting of the year at 7:00 p.m. Among the resolutions before the Council is one authorizing a settlement in an Article 7 lawsuit brought against the City in July by T. Eric Galloway over the assessment on his house at 345 Allen Street and the carriage house behind it. 
The house was assessed at $1.4 million and the carriage house at $500,000. In his lawsuit, Galloway claimed the house was worth $695,000 and the carriage house $175,000. The settlement sets the value of the house at $1.2 million and the carriage house at $250,000. The house went on the market in October, with an asking price of $1,350,000. According to Zillow, the sale of the property is now under contract. Galloway bought the house in 2001 for $460,000.
The links to both Zoom meetings will be posted on the City of Hudson website prior to the meetings. Scroll down to the calendar.

  1. Galloway's got some nerve proceeding with a lawsuit that has already been settled financially by selling the property for even MORE than the settlement price. How dare he? Just shows what a selfish and venal attitude he has toward his properties in Hudson. Shame!
