Hesitant Hudson council advances sex offender ordinance


The Hudson City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance at its Aug. 7 meeting that would restrict where convicted sexual offenders can reside in the city.

The ordinance proposed by Alderman Randy Morrissette II would bar specified registered sexual offenders from residing within 2,000 feet of schools, daycare centers, public libraries, parks and playgrounds or within 1,000 feet of school bus stops, churches and other places where children congregate.
