A Preview of Tonight's Council Meeting

Since yesterday, some new documents have appeared on the agenda for tonight's informal Council meeting: an appraisal done last month for 429-431 Warren Street, the former location of the Code Enforcement Office, and 10-12 Warren Street, the pair of townhouses that were the location of the Hudson Daycare Center, and resolutions to sell each property.

The appraisal sets the value of 429-431 Warren Street at $595,000 and the value of 10-12 Warren Street at $895,000. The resolution for 429-431 Warren Street resolves that the building be sold at auction to the highest bidder, with the minimum required bid being $595,000, "subject to a penalty in the event the successful bidder does not develop the property or sells it within three years of taking title." The resolution for 10-12 Warren Street resolves that the building be sold at auction to the highest bidder, with the minimum required bid being $895,000, also subject to a penalty if the property is not developed within three years or is sold in that time frame. The resolutions do not define what the penalty might be.

  1. I was shocked this morning when I glanced at the Register Star front page news. A property used by the Hudson Day Care Center for nearly 50 years is being sold. We rent from the city of Hudson and we were never advised of this move to sell, by Hudson. The article stated the Center " had moved to another location. " That is not true. We have looked at space in Hudson and Claverack without any success.
    We were set to reopen after the "virus" subsided in September, 2021. In July the area was hit by a tremendous rain storm that damaged our section of the building. The city's own Department of Code Enforcement cited the city for multiple code violations at 10-12 Warren St. And were " directed and ordered to comply with the law and to remedy the conditions...forthwith." The Center has not been able to re-open. That's the short story.
