A public hearing on the proposed move of the Columbia County Department of Social Services (DSS) to the former Ockawamick School in Claverack will be held July 30.
The county Board of Supervisors has proposed moving DSS which currently is on Railroad Avenue in Hudson several miles away to the former Ockawamick School on Rt 217.
This move will have major implications for Hudson. 54% of all DSS clients live in Hudson and will need to be transported to DSS should the move take place. There are other potential solutions to the siting issue.
All concerned citizens are encouraged to attend to make your thoughts known on this important issue. The public hearing will take place on July 30th at 7 p.m. at Hudson Middle School.
