HUDSON — A. Colarusso and Son said Friday it has filed a countersuit against the city of Hudson, the city Planning Board and the Hudson Community Development and Planning Agency in response to the lawsuit the city filed against the company in August.
The countersuit was announced by company President Paul A. Colarusso in an editorial board meeting with Columbia-Greene Media on Friday.
Colarusso, who owns and operates a quarry on Newman Road in the town of Greenport which supplies road building materials, filed the suit in State Supreme Court in Albany on Sept. 15. Papers were served personally by Colarusso to the Hudson city clerk on Thursday.
The company’s countersuit was filed to “protect its business and the hundreds of jobs that it has supported in Columbia County for more than 100 years,” Colarusso said Friday.
