HUDSON: Two properties will retain their agricultural status, after approval by council on Wednesday.
Public hearing was scheduled for the property of Kenneth Kuryla on E. Norton Road, who maintains a tree farm on 38 acres of land.
A hearing was also held on approximately 10 acres of land owned by Warren and Darlyne Roller and used for pastureland for farm animals.
Council unanimously passed the resolutions to maintain the agricultural tax status for both properties.
In other business, council amended two agreements, one with Janco Service Industries and the other with TruGreen, Inc. Both agreements are for two years, and the amounts authorized in the original agreements provided authorization for payment of only one year of the contract price.
Janco will now receive $158, 662 for cleaning of city owned buildings over the next two years; TruGreen will receive $63,942 for landscape maintenance for the city's public greens and buildings.
