John Mason is reporting in the Register-Star the Hudson Common Council will decide next week if the Furgary shacks, located in the city's North Bay, will be demolished. At the informal meeting of the council Mon., May 11, President Don Moore expressed Mayor William H. Hallenbeck, Jr.'s desire to move forward on the issue. Moore said the first step toward removal is to conduct an environmental assessment. First Ward Alderman Nick Haddad said the Council's Furgary Committee had done several walk-throughs of the shacks. “The owners don’t want them; there’s no interest on the state’s part to preserve any of them. I lobbied to keep one of them; the state wants nothing to do with them,” he said. The decades old fishing shacks are located just west of the sewer treatment plant at Dock and Front streets. Residents of the shacks were evicted in July 2012. Since that time the structures have stood vacant. The council will take up the matter at its formal meeting, Tue., May 19.
