“Potholes,” laughed Town Chair Jeff Johnson as he began his monthly road report, in what was a relatively short Hudson Town Board meeting March 31.
“The worst of them are getting filled,” said Johnson, “but we are not on all the roads every day.”
He urged the public to report to town officials about any potholes that have gone unfilled. Johnson also warned the public to not drive on any roads with standing water, as some of the town’s potholes are rather large, saying, “you just don’t know what’s underneath the water.”
Open Book set
The town of Hudson’s annual open book and Board of Review meetings begin in May. The open book meetings are from noon-6 p.m. Tuesday, May 19, and from 2-7 p.m. Wednesday, May 20. The Board of Review meets from 10 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. Thursday, June 11.
Currently in the town of Hudson, there is $16,000 in delinquent property tax bills. With two homeowners filing for bankruptcy, the town is currently out $15,000. Town officials are consulting with the town’s attorney and considering further penalties for repeat offenders, as a majority of those with outstanding bills are repeat offenders.
Until a decision is made, the town will not do inspections or issue building permits to anyone with delinquent taxes. This issue is planned for further discussion during the board’s regularly scheduled May meeting.
