Public works superintendent to retire

The Hudson City Council on Monday night accepted the resignation of Public Works Superintendent Steven Adams, effective March 13.

Adams, a Hudson native, will be ending a 35-year career with the city. He has served as supervisor in the Public Works Department for the past 20 years.

"It's time," the 56-year-old Adams said when contacted Tuesday morning about his retirement. He said he doesn't have any big plans and will continue to live in Hudson.

"I have had a wonderful career with the city of Hudson and I am sure there will be times that I will miss being here, but I am also looking forward to my retirement," said Adams in his letter of resignation to Mayor Jack Breault.

The council is expected to decide on a procedure for replacing Adams at its Jan. 5 meeting.
