Recognizing that there is a possible downside to any transaction, we think the city of Hudson made the correct decision in purchasing the Nuclear Management Co. property for $2.5 million – without any increase in taxes.
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 Hudson City Council emerged from an hour-long closed session Monday night and voted unanimously to approve an agreement that could lead to the city’s purchase of the Nuclear Management Co. building at the corner of First and Vine streets.
The city is continuing to investigate the possibility of purchasing the former Nuclear Management Co. headquarters at the corner of First and Vine streets, Mayor Dean Knudson said in a telephone interview on Tuesday.
The Hazel Mackin Community Library of Roberts recently received three new grants that will assist in the construction of a new library.
Library Board President Dora Rohl said that grants from the Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation of Bayport were among the newly received. That grant was a $250,000 matching grant.
It may be crowded and too small by some standards, but residents throughout the Hudson area continue to use their library. In 2008, 323,964 items were circulated from the facility at 911 Fourth St. According to Jim O’Connor, chairman of the Library Board, that amounts to 1,100 volumes per day, six days a week.
