North Hudson board sets stage for village hall addition

The North Hudson Village Board approved spending $2,875 for phase one of planning a 3,000-square-foot addition to the village hall, 400 7th St. No. The action came at a board meeting Tuesday, June 6.

The money will be used to contract Elliot Architects to make schematic designs and drawings for the potential project. Under village rules, no capital project over $150,000 can be completed with voter approval. Trustees are hopeful that a referendum for the addition will be on the November ballot.

President Larry Larsen said the initial expenditure is necessary to find out what the project looks like and what it will cost. "This is a logical first step to get some information," add Trustee Marc Zappa.

Elliot Architects was one of four firms to present a proposal. The Public Safety Committee recommended the hiring of Elliot and the board approved with a unanimous 6-0 vote.
