Following a study regarding the needs of the Hudson Fire Department in March, the city has approved moving forward with a study of the Ward Avenue property as the future site of a new station. The study will be conducted by Five Bugles Design, which did the initial needs study. At the common council meeting on Monday, Nov. 20, Five Bugles architect Michael Clark said the city could do a study of the site, or simply move ahead with a full design contract at this time. Hudson Fire Chief Scott St. Martin recommended the study as the first step. "This would be the more economical one and the one I would advise to take," St. Martin said.
