Council wraps up year

December 22, 2011 —

At their final planned meeting of the year Tuesday night, the Hudson City Council approved a tax abatement request for $3, 176,234 in improvements for Hi-Lex Control. The new equipment includes a 600 ton stamping press, a foam in place gasket maching, an addional cable machine and a 20 ton overhead crane. The tax abatement will not go into place until 2012. The action will mean the city will receive an additional $52,392 over the next twelve years.

In other business, the council approved closing streets for a 5K run planned by Sacred Heart School, to be held in conjunction with the Spring N-2 Summer Festival on June 2.

The council also:

• Granted service awards to Ron Keck and Phil Goodlock;

• Approved a plan to put lights at the new bridge on the Findlay Trail;

• Was notified that the Facade Improvement Project Grant was approved by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, for $321,960 of the $479,000 project.
