As mandated by the IEPA, the Village of Hudson must test for lead and copper every 3 years. The link below includes the results for the additional testing from early November. These results include the water parameter test and the voluntary test of the 10 lead/copper sites in the village. All of these tests came back non-detected and the water quality test came back in parameters. This is good news for the village. The mandate from the IEPA still calls for an additional test for lead/copper in January 2020. This test is an additional 20 home sites. I anticipate results in late January. This is the updated results that the Hudson Water Department has promised to our customers. If you have any questions about the results or additional tests, please call Jeff Waller at 726-1471. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Village of Hudson is an equal opportunity employer committed to ensuring compliance with all applicable federal and state laws. While the Village is unable to comment on the employment of any specific employee due to privacy concerns for that individual, in general, the Village treats each employee request for work accommodations on an individual, case by case basis taking into account such factors as the employee’s work restrictions and length of time those restrictions will be in place, the essential and non-essential job functions of the employee’s position, and the impact of the employee’s restrictions on other employees with the same job duties. The Village of Hudson Police Department is very small with only 1 full-time officer and 5 part-time officers. Due to the small size of the department, not having an officer available for work assignments for a prolonged period of time creates an undue burden on the operations of the department. The Village is not required to create additional employment that it would have not otherwise created in order to accommodate an employee’s work restrictions.
Under the current garbage contract, free bulk pick up will only occur on the first Tuesday of each month. Residents MUST call the Village Office at (309) 726-1099 and give an address and a list of the items to be picked up. If you wish to have bulk items picked up at any other time during the month, you MUST call AREA Disposal at (309) 821-9743. There is a $35 fee for EACH item. The Village of Hudson asks that you NOT set your bulk items out before Tuesday on the week they are to be picked up. It has become apparent that some residents have been confused and bulk items have been left on the curb for weeks at a time. I think we can all agree that this is not the look we want for our community. Any questions, call Carol at (309) 726-1099.
Thanks in Advance.
