Although the autumnal equinox isn't until September 22, with Labor Day behind us, summer is unofficially over. Here's what's happening in the first unofficial week of fall.
- On Wednesday, September 8, the Board of the Hudson Development Corporation (HDC) holds a special meeting at noon at 1 North Front Street. It is expected that at this meeting the contract for the sale of the former Kaz site, also known as the Montgomery Street parcel, will be presented to the board for approval.
- On Wednesday, September 8, at 6:00 p.m., the Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners meets in the Community Room at Bliss Towers, 41 North Second Street. The commissioners have a lot on their plate right now. They are working on an RFQ (request for qualifications) for the redevelopment of HHA property; they need to find a new executive director; and, as Gossips just discovered, the HHA website has expired.
- Also on Wednesday, September 8, at 6:00 p.m., the Common Council Legal Committee holds its first meeting since Council president Tom DePietro decided to reinstate it. The meeting takes place at City Hall. Among the things the committee is expected to discuss is the proposed "good cause eviction" law, which restricts reasons for eviction to ten and requires landlords to renew leases automatically for tenants in good standing. The law was based on a similar law enacted in Albany in July. There is likely to be a big turnout for this meeting, which will test Mayor Kamal Johnson's policy statement, issued on August 16, that limits the number of audience members in the Council Chamber to ten.
- On Friday, September 10, the Historic Preservation Commission holds its first meeting of the month at 10:00 a.m. at City Hall.
