On Tuesday December 2nd, at the monthly Village of Hudson Board Meeting, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the amendment of Village ordinance 1150 with the addition of item 10 to section 4.6. The amended item 10 states "All temporary and movable buildings must meet the current and approved building code and/or all accessory structure codes and ordinances." The primary structure targeted by this amendment are temporary and movable carports typically constructed of a ribbed tube frame and either a soft or rigid roof. With the amendment of ordinance 1150 these structures must now meet the same 2012 International Building Codes as an accessory structure, such as a garden shed. We strongly encourage residents to review Village of Hudson ordinance 1150, the 2012 International Building Codes, AND contact the Village of Hudson Zoning Department for guidance before purchasing any temporary enclosures or carport type structures. Doing so will avoid any unnecessary frustration, expense and potential fines. The Village of Hudson Zoning Department can be contacted at 309-726-1471.
