As we look forward to more sweltering days ahead, there's not much happening on the city meeting scene. A Tourism Board meeting for today at 5:00 p.m. has been canceled, as has the mayor's hearing scheduled for Thursday on a law amending the code regarding sidewalk repair and ADA standards. Here's what left.
- On Wednesday, June 30, the absentee ballots for the Democratic primary held on June 22 will be counted at the Columbia County Board of Elections, 401 State Street, starting at 10:00 a.m. The race to watch is the one for alderman in the Fifth Ward, where incumbent Dominic Merante leads Rebecca Borrer by only one vote.
- On Wednesday, June 30, at 5:00 p.m., the Common Council meets to consider a resolution of support for a grant application to be submitted by Friends of Oakdale Lake. The application is for a NYS DEC Community Impact Grant for water quality improvements at Oakdale Lake. This meeting will be the first meeting of the Common Council to take place since the COVID restrictions were lifted on June 24. It will be held in person at City Hall.
- Also on Wednesday, June 30, the development committee of the Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners meets at 6:00 p.m. The subject of the meeting will no doubt be the request for qualifications (RFQ) for the redevelopment of HHA property. It is expected that there will be a public hearing on the RFQ on Wednesday, July 7, after which the board will vote to approve the RFQ at its regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, July 14, and the RFQ will be released to developers the following day.
