City Council Highlights Logo

Following is a summary of November 1, 2022, City Council Meeting. To watch the meeting, visit 

Public Comments

  • In reference to the legislation for Guidelines for renting space at City facilities, several citizens commented in support of Destination Hudson and the Fire Museum and the services that the organizations provide to the community. Destination Hudson asked to come before Council at a future meeting to showcase all that both organizations do. Individuals pointed to the $350,000 that the organization (along with the Fire Museum) raised to renovate the first floor of Town Hall. 
  • Two citizens spoke about concerns about Council’s discussion regarding trying to deal with coyotes in Hudson. They feel that there should be more education to citizens regarding how to discourage coyotes, rather than culling the herd. 
  • A citizen expressed support of the legislation before Council for the monthly transparency financial reporting, feeling that transparency is critical given past issues with expenditures under $25,000.
