Council Comments

  • A Council member mentioned they received an email from a resident in support of an off-leash dog park in Hudson.

  • The Architectural and Historic Board of Review met last week and approved a sign for a bubble tea shop that is moving to Hudson.
  • A Council member thanked Jane Howington for her time serving as City Manager and wished her the best of luck.
  • A Council member spoke about the selection process for a new Mayor. Council received many more applications than anticipated. Fifteen applicants meet the submission requirements. Two did not meet the length of residency requirement. A list of the applicants will be put out to Council. Each Council member will choose six names and send to the Clerk of Council to tally. Any applicant whose name was mentioned three or more times will be interviewed. A Special Meeting will be added to April 12 before the regularly scheduled Workshop to appoint a new Mayor before the April 14 deadline.
