This afternoon, the Hudson Industrial Development Agency (IDA) held a special meeting and approved the PILOTs and other financial benefits sought by the Galvan Foundation for 708 State Street and 75 North Seventh Street.
In each case, the vote was 4 to 2. Those voting in favor were Tiffany Garriga, Common Council majority leader; Rebecca Wolff, Common Council minority leader; Cheryl Kaszluga, city assessor; and John Cody, representative from the Planning Board. The two nay votes were cast by Heather Campbell, city treasurer, and Richard Wallace, the community representative on the IDA. Mayor Kamal Johnson recused himself from the vote, but, for those attending the meeting on Zoom, it was impossible to hear his explanation of why he was doing so.
