HUDSON — The environmental watchdog group the Valley Alliance has challenged the legality of a land transfer previously supported by the city’s Common Council. On Monday, Hudson Mayor William Hallenbeck received a 10-page legal memorandum filed by attorney Kenneth Dow that, in Dow’s legal opinion, deems the Holcim US riverfront transfer “unauthorized, unlawful and void.”

The resolution to transfer nine acres of Holcim’s land to Hudson, at the end of a 50-year waiting period, was considered by Dow to be in violation of the state’s Constitution, Common Law and the city’s own charter.

    Glad to see someone is keeping an eye on the ball. If the claims are correct, the big gift may be to Holcim. Local tax breaks, plus writing off the gift on the Fed taxes

    Very similar issues to the North Bay. Could have saved the taxpaying people of Hudson the expense by just including the existing stewards of a foreshore as required by common law. Let people flow...

    Does the city of Hudson do anything legal or right. They think like all the rest of the politicians that they can do no wrong. November can't come fast enough.
