Hudson has a Council-Manager form of government, defined in the Town’s Home Rule Charter. The Manager is accountable to the Town Council for implementation of Council policies and enforcement of ordinances and for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Town.
The Town Manager prepares and manages the Town’s annual budget in cooperation with the Council and department heads, negotiates development agreements and other contracts, writes grant applications and oversees certain construction projects. As part of the annual budget process, the Manager conducts a survey of Town residents to identify both satisfaction with the full range of Town services and preferences for programs and projects to consider in the upcoming budget year.
The Town contracts with Professional Management Solutions for regular assistance in accounting and financial reporting. In the 2016 refunding of the Town’s street paving bonds, the Town achieved an “A+” rating from S&P Global in its rating report.
