John Mason is reporting in the Register Star the Hudson Common Council Tues., July 15, overrode Mayor William H. Hallenbeck Jr.’s veto of the city's amended Mass Gatherings Permit Law with 69 percent of the vote. A two-thirds majority, or 67 percent, was required to override. The mayor vetoed the measure based on his objection to the increased period of notice and increased insurance for events requiring alcohol that will now be required by the law. Organizers must now provide 120 days notice of an event, instead of 60 days. The amended law was approved unanimously by the Common Council last month. Read the full story in the Register Star.
