Amanda Purcell reports for Columbia-Greene Media that after years of asking, dog owners in Hudson might finally get a park to walk their pets. A dog park was a campaign promise of Hudson Mayor Rick Rector, and he held an information session about the idea Oct. 15 at the Hudson Library. Rector says three locations might be suitable for dogs: Charles Williams Park, at 238 Mill St.; a bit of land on North Second Street, south of the former dump; and the former Foster’s Refrigerators site on North Second Street.
