Council to vote on plan to cut cop shop costs

Aug 12, 2015 7:05 am
John Mason is reporting in the Register-Star the Hudson Common Council will vote next week on a plan to reduce the cost of the proposed police/court center by paying its architect more than $30,000 to modify the building plans. The modifications could reduce the overall price of the project by $600,000 to $700,000. The total cost of the facility, to be located at 701 Union St., is estimated to be $3.1 million. The resolution now before the council would authorize a payment of $33,500 to the architectural firm Sabir, Richardson & Weisberg, and would require the modifications be completed by Oct. 1. Mayor William H. Hallenbeck said if the project goes out to rebid and then on to the construction phase, it will be under new leadership. Public Works Superintendent Robert Perry will be the clerk of the works, replacing Mayor’s Aide Gene Shetsky. The aldermen will also vote next week on whether to sell the existing police station and court building on Warren St., once vacant, and use those proceeds to defray the costs of the new facility.
