BUYING OR SELLING A HOME IN HUDSON?
If you are selling your home in Hudson, you are required to call the Department of Public Works to request your final water and sewer reading. You must call at least 5 - 10 business days before the closing and provide us with the address of the house, the closing date, and the buyer's name(s), as reads on the purchase and sales agreement. This will allow us to roll the water and sewer over into their name, and a final bill will not be excecuted without the new owner's name(s). We will also need to schedule a time for your water meter to be changed. This will be of no cost to the buyers or sellers, but we will need somebody to be home to let us into the house. The current meter must be in an unobstructed area, meaning it cannot be hidden in a wall or hidden by furniture - we will not be responsible for clearing the
area. The meter takes about an hour to be installed and water usage will not be available while the meter is changed. For any questions regarding this process, please call Ann at 978-562-9333, extension 319.
The Department of Public Works is responsible for providing the citizens of Hudson with an extensive variety of services on a daily basis. These services are spread amongst five separate divisions: Public Administration; Parks/Cemeteries/Forestry; Streets; Water, and Sewer. Within each individual division are distinct responsibilities and services such as roadway maintenance, sweeping, street lights, traffic lines, drainage, grass mowing, burials, tree removal and plantings, roadside brush, water supply treatment and distribution, sewer collection and treatment, snow removal, utility billing and many others. The staff members of the department are highly dedicated to their positions working on your behalf. The safety and comfort of those who may not live here but also work or travel through Hudson is our utmost concern.
Every effort is expended to satisfy the realistic
