Hudson Assessor Provides Grievance Day Guidance for Property Owners

The City of Hudson Board of Assessment Review (BAR) will hold its annual Grievance Day on Tuesday, May 28th at the Central Hudson Fire House on 77 N. 7th Street.

The Grievance Day hours will be from 11am-3pm and from 4pm to 8pm. We encourage homeowners to take advantage of the earlier time slot if possible. 

To submit your official Grievance, you must have the RP-524 form filled out completely, as well as attaching all supporting documents to this form that support your position. Property owners will be given 3-5 minutes to state their case, submit their information, and then the BAR will review each one individually at a later date.

The RP-524 form can be found online at the City of Hudson Website under the Assessors page. Examples of supporting documents would be Comparable Sales and Property Appraisals.

If you wish to meet with the Assessor prior to Grievance Day, or have any questions regarding the process, you can contact him at 518-828-3141 or by email at Assessor@cityofhudson.org.

The Assessor is willing to review a property and stipulate prior to Grievance Day. If no stipulation can be agreed to, then filing your paperwork with the BAR would be recommended.

Sincerely,

Justin Maxwell

May 10,2019 CAC Inventory 2019

Hudson's Conservation Advisory Council Releases Natural Resources and Open Space Inventory

After four years, two state grants, and hundreds of hours of volunteer effort, the Hudson Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) presented the city's first natural resource and open space inventory to the Common Council at its meeting on Monday, May 13, 7 p.m., at City Hall, 520 Warren Street.

The inventory is a 56-page magazine-style report, including 14 specially created maps and a text explaining them. It provides a broad overview of natural and urban conditions within the city. The report is available free in printed form at City Hall and the Hudson Area Library, and online at the CAC's web page.

The inventory establishes a baseline of information essential to ensuring the health and well-being of Hudson's citizens, civic spaces and natural resources. The new maps show, for example, projections of future sea-level rise and waterfront flooding; the source of the city's drinking water; the presence of rare and endangered species; and where the city has — and lacks —  street trees.

The maps and analysis are as accurate as possible, given currently available data and the CAC’s limited resources. However, natural and urban conditions are always evolving. The inventory is offered as a snapshot in time, and the CAC intends that it be updated periodically. It is descriptive, rather than prescriptive — not a planning document itself, but a body of knowledge to be incorporated into planning documents and decisions. It does not answer all questions about the city's natural resources, address political controversies, or initiate any enforcement action.  But it does highlight important challenges Hudson faces. It identifies problems needing further study, and suggests possible actions to address them.

The CAC was established in 2015 to provide Hudson's governmental bodies and citizens with objective information about environmental concerns. There are currently several open seats; interested volunteers should contact Common Council President Tom DePietro.

Youth Government Day Students Learn City Government

RR office w OUNY -2 (72)

Mayor Rector discussed civics and public service with students participating in Operation Unite New York's 2019 Youth Government Day in his office on April 16.  The students spent a full day in a mock Common Council meeting and shadowing officials like the Treasurer, Clerk, Common Council President and Aldermen asking loads of questions on how these public servants do their jobs.  Welcomed each year by City officials, the day is the creation of OUNY Director Elena Mosley.  The students spent the morning at City Hall, had discussions with officials at an informal lunch at the Youth Department, then returned to City Hall for a mock Common Council meeting where the students take the roles of the officials they had shadowed.  Each year, Ms. Mosley and her staff prepare the students to engage in debates, respecting each other's positions while arguing for their own.

Hudson, NY - December 27, 2017
 
In response to the Executive Order issued by Governor Cuomo on December 22nd, The City of Hudson has issued a new tax warrant dated December 28, 2017, for 2018 property taxes. While timing is extremely short and we have not worked out all of the logistics, we will begin accepting online payments on Friday, December 29th.

Anyone wishing to prepay 2018 city/county property taxes can do so online at https://www.xpress-pay.com/billSelect.asp

If you would like in-person assistance, the City Treasurer's Office will be open from 8:30am to 5:00pm on Friday the 29th to assist you in paying your tax bill online.  Please direct any questions to the City Treasurer's Office at (518) 828-0212.

The City understands the potential negative financial impacts to property owners of the tax reform bill signed into effect by President Trump last Friday, and we are making every effort to provide relief in the form of 2018 property tax prepayments. Please direct any questions to the City Treasurer's Office at (518) 828-0212.

As Temps Drop, Remain Vigilant

With temps dropping dangerously low, it's important for us to remain vigilant in keeping a watchful eye on our friends and neighbors in the community. Chief Moore issued an order this morning requiring that officers on every shift check areas known to frequently be used for homeless encampments to ensure that anyone who is out in the cold is given the option of a place to warm up and is connected with DSS to arrange emergency shelter. We all have neighbors who could perhaps use a friendly check-in, and we may encounter people in our daily travels who seem to have suffered from extended cold exposure. Please reach out to HPD at 518-828-3388 with any concerns and request a wellness check. Thank you!
