Alternate-side parking in Hudson now suspended on the weekends until fall
Aliya Schneider is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media it's that time of year — in the city of Hudson, alternate side of the street parking has been suspended on weekends until further notice. Parking on both sides of the street is permitted overnight Friday, Saturday and Sunday, unless otherwise posted. Parking on the odd side for odd-numbered calendar dates and even side for even-numbered calendar days is still required from 12 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Thursday. Police Commissioner Shane C. Bower May 19, issued the policy. The police commissioner historically suspends alternate-side parking during the non-winter months because snow removal is no longer a concern. The suspension will likely remain in effect until sometime in September. The Department of Public Works conducts street cleaning five days a week from April to November, Superintendent of Public Works Robert Perry said. Some streets are cleaned a couple of times a week and some are done every night. Vehicles parked on both sides of the street also pose challenges for the fire department when responding to emergencies, Hudson Fire Chief Anthony Demarco said.
