W. T. Eckert reports in the Register-Star that Hudson city officials proposed at the last minute for the county to lease a building at 25 Railroad Ave. rather than buy the former Wal-Mart building in Greenport to house many county operations. The resolution to purchase the former Walmart Building was tabled at the Wed., Aug. 10. full Board of Supervisors meeting. Hudson Common Council President Don Moore said Hudson Mayor Rick Scalera proposed the plan, which would have the city buy the building for around $1 million. “The city wants to buy the existing DSS building 25 RR Ave and lease it to the county for $15000 a month versus $30000, until they get the court system in there,” Republican supervisor from Kinderhook Pat Grattan said. Eventually, the City of Hudson would move the city police station and court system into the building. Tthe plan will be discussed at the next Hudson City Council meeting 7 p.m Tuesday August 16 at City Hall. Read the full story in the Register-Star.
