New HHA ED holds first meeting
Jeanette Wolfberg reports in the Columbia Paper that the Hudson Housing Authority's new executive director, Jeffrey Dodson, led his first meeting of the board July 18. The authority sets policy for 135-units of income-restricted residences, in the high-rise Bliss Tower and three low-rise buildings in Hudson. Dodson moved the public comment portion of the meeting to the start, and heard from a resident complaining about drug selling and a community room they said was locked up 90 percent of the time. Dodson directed the resident to come talk to him about the issues in his office. The new business at the meeting was working on scheduling and arranging elections to fill two open seats on the board. The next Hudson Housing Authority meeting is at 6 p.m., August 15 in the Bliss community room, if it is unlocked. Read more about this story in the Columbia Paper.
