In this week that leads up to the beginning of Passover and Easter Sunday, here is what is happening in the secular world of Hudson.
- On Monday, April 11, the Common Council holds its informal meeting at 6:00 p.m. Of interest on the agenda for tonight, along with fourteen letters about Warren Street Seasonal Usage and possible street closure, are a resolution making a negative declaration under SEQRA (State Environmental Quality Review Act) for the Hudson Connects project, the plans for which have not been seen by the public since they were presented to the Historic Preservation Commission in February, and a resolution to adopt an organizational chart of city government created by mayor's aide Michael Hofmann. It should be remembered that the Council does not vote at its informal meeting. Resolutions are just introduced and discussed. The actual vote does not take place until the regular meeting, which takes place on Tuesday, April 19. Tonight's meeting will be a hybrid--in person at City Hall and virtually on Zoom.
