Valley Alliance takes issue with Holcim land transfer

Joe Gentile writes in the Register Star the Valley Alliance has challenged the legality of a land transfer approved by the Hudson Common Council. Hudson Mayor William Hallenbeck was recently provided a legal memorandum prepared by the organization that makes the argument the Holcim U.S. transfer of nine acres of land at the city's waterfront was unauthorized, unlawful and void. Holcim U.S. is a division of the Swiss multinational Holcim Corporation. The Valley Alliance claimed city officials allegedly failed to supply sufficient information about what land would transfer and criticized the resolution for identifying the transaction as a Holcim gift to the city in exchange for tax credits. City officials reserved comment pending a full review of the memorandum. Read the full story in the Register Star.
