City Hall Offices Decamping to the Fire Station

We already know the meetings that typically take place at City Hall are now being held at the Central Fire Station, 77 North Seventh Street. Today it was announced that all city offices now located in City Hall will relocated to the fire station while the renovations to achieve ADA compliance at 520 Warren Street are carried out.

The following is quoted from a press release issued this afternoon by City Hall:
Beginning on March 6, 2023, the offices of City Hall will be relocated to Hudson’s Central Fire Station at 77 N. 7th Street. This relocation is due to planned construction occurring at 520 Warren Street to improve accessibility to the city’s core municipal services and public meeting space. During this construction period, projected to conclude in July 2023, 520 Warren Street and the immediately adjacent area of sidewalk and street parking will be closed to the public.
This relocation impacts the offices of the Mayor, the City Clerk, the City Treasurer, the City Assessor, and the Departments of Public Works, Water & Sewer, and Housing Justice, as well as the meetings of the Common Council and a majority of the city’s public boards and committees. The relocation process for City Hall offices to the Central Fire Station will take place primarily over the course of March 2 to 3, and during this time City Hall will be closed except by appointment. Starting March 6, the public will have access to all departments by visiting the Central Fire Station during standard business hours (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) or contacting specific departments by email.
Response times to requests may be delayed during the first few weeks of this relocation due to changes and updates to technological infrastructure at the Central Fire Station, including the City Hall phone system, and limited access to files that must continue to be stored at 520 Warren Street during construction.
Due to renovation activity occurring at the entrance to 520 Warren Street, some exterior amenities will also be relocated.

    • Overnight deposits of fee payments or other documents for City Hall offices may be deposited in a receptacle located at the City of Hudson Police Department at 701A Union Street. This amenity is for document drop-off only; any in-person questions, requests, or assistance with City Hall business must be made at the Central Fire Station at 77 N. 7th Street during business hours of the renovation period.
    • The vending machine for trash bags is relocated to the exterior of the Central Fire Station, 77 N. 7th Street.
