Hudson Public Power

We are minimizing the number of employees in our offices and are using social distancing to help protect the health and safety of staff. As part of American Municipal Power (AMP) we have additional resources in place to call upon should the need arise. We have canceled in person meetings with citizens but will continue to keep the power running in Hudson.

Hudson Water

The water plant staff is practicing social distancing and working in isolation as much as possible to protect the health and safety of our staff. The water plant is cleaned daily, but even greater measures have been instituted to keep the staff safe with this pandemic. The City can assist other water systems and can receive assistance from various water systems in the area should the need arise. We also can utilize the statewide mutual aid system called Ohio WARN. All in person meetings with citizens have been canceled, but we will continue to perform work outside as needed.

Planning and Zoning

Safety Forces

We are fully staffed and prepared to answer emergency calls as needed. For non-emergency situations, call 330-342-1800 and we will take as much information as possible by phone. Do not come to our safety center or police station unless it is an emergency.

Please don’t call 911 if you think you have COVID-19 and have mild or no symptoms. Contact your doctor rather than using 911. Call 911 only for emergencies such as trouble breathing, chest pains, strokes, or other issues that need immediate emergency care. Finger-printing services, as well as the prescription drop-box have been suspended at this time.

Utility Information

Hudson is prepared to face this crisis and keep our utility services flowing to you around the clock. Our crews are fully staffed and focused on serving you while putting appropriate protective measures in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Keep in mind our field personnel perform most of their work outside of homes and businesses, with minimal interaction with customers or the general public. When such interactions are required, appropriate preventive measures like social distancing will be in place to help protect all parties. 

We know our customers’ normal routines may be disrupted during this time. We will continue to send out bills for our services. However, to help customers who are facing financial difficulties, we have suspended all service shutoffs for past-due accounts until further notice.
