Lynn Sloneker at unmuffled reports that voters in Hudson will be asked in May by the Hudson City Board of Education to pay to replace roofs at John L. Edwards Primary School, M.C. Smith Intermediate School, Hudson High School, and the former Claverack School, and perhaps for the relocation of district offices. Hudson City Board of Education Vice President Jeff Otty estimated those projects may cost $7 million, although state grants will pay for some of the costs. The board unanimously approved a motion from Otty to begin gathering proposals at a Jan. 25 meeting. The board also approved installation of acoustic tiles in the junior high school cafeteria for $4-5,000, and an $8,000 flower and vegetable garden called the Henry Hudson Discovery Garden.
