City of Akron Press Release
Published: 02-02-2016

Akron, Ohio, February 2, 2016 – Mayor Dan Horrigan, along with additional representatives from the City of Akron Law and Public Service departments, met with City of Hudson officials yesterday to discuss the past, the present, and the future for Akron water service in the City of Hudson. While much work remains to be completed, the meeting was another step toward the goal of completing a water service and tax-sharing agreement between the communities. The agreement will benefit the City of Akron, the City of Hudson, including both residents and businesses within those communities. 

One of the items discussed at the meeting was the status of water connection requests pending with the City of Akron.   Even though no written water service agreement is currently in place, Mayor Horrigan agreed that pending service connection requests will be approved.  “Allowing these customers to connect to our water system will provide Hudson residents and businesses with the water they need, while at the same time generating additional water revenue for the City of Akron,” said Mayor Horrigan.  

“This first step shows that both of the parties to this agreement want to work together to do what’s best for our communities and the region as a whole. I look forward to working with Hudson as we finalize this much needed water agreement,” the Mayor added. 

“We appreciate Mayor Horrigan’s willingness to meet with us in his first month of office on this issue which is so important to our residents, and we are encouraged that pending service requests will be approved. We welcome the opportunity to work with the City of Akron to meet the needs of our residents and businesses,” added Jane Howington, Hudson City Manager.
