A vote on authorizing Mayor Dean Knudson to sign documents finalizing the city’s purchase of the Nuclear Management Co. property is on the agenda for the Monday, Dec. 7, meeting of the Hudson City Council.
The $2.5 million purchase, if approved by the council, will include the former NMC headquarters building at 700 First St. and a much smaller office building at 701 Second St.
The plan is for the Hudson Area Joint Library and the city’s police department to move into the three-level building with roughly 40,000 square feet of floor area at the corner of First and Vine streets.
The city entered into an agreement to buy the NMC property in October, but the deal was contingent upon the property passing inspection and the library board agreeing to lease half the building.
The library board authorized the move on a 6-1 vote in early November.
Final approval of the $120,000-per-year lease is on the agenda for the library board’s Dec. 14 meeting.
Monday night, the City Council also will discuss (and possibly act on) interim financing for the purchase of the NMC property.
Other items for consideration on Monday night’s council agenda include:
