Pittsfield Seeking New Location for Police Shooting Range
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:10AM / Thursday, August 09, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Police are now looking for either a place outside the city limits or to build an indoor shooting range.   The Police Department halted live fire at the Utility Drive shooting range last month following objections from the neighbors. Police Chief Michael Wynn said a look at other city-owned properties to create a new range will likely face the same problem. That leaves the city in a position to either build an indoor facility or find somewhere else for an outdoor one.   "It is not like we can do this at an outdoor location within city limits without some serious engineering work," Wynn said. "It is either get outside of the city limits

Let's Go Paperless
by Soapbox
05:07PM / Monday, February 06, 2012

This is from Ward 6 Councilor John Krol's eblast today. His switch to digital immediately caught our attention. With the associated costs - nearly $4,000 a year for paper alone! - zipping councilors "the packet" (as we in the know like to call it) over the ether makes loads of sense. Digital also means the average citizen gets far better access to these public documents than ever before. The city clerk's office has been diligent about posting meeting agendas and, where possible, relevant documents. So in terms of saving money and time and getting information out efficiently, digital is the way to go.

I would like to thank City Clerk Linda Tyer for agreeing to print out one less city council packet, as I have officially gone paperless for council meetings - which I hope will be a trend that can be extended throughout city government.

The bulky (and often, very bulky) city council packet that councilors use for a reference costs an average of $170 per meeting for paper alone. Add the additional costs of ink/toner, wear and tear on city hall copiers, and the time and energy of staff who put it all together - and a simple transition away from paper benefits everyone.

With the packet now fully digital in pdf form, all councilors, and everyone with an internet

January 29, 2011
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Dozens of youths, many of them under the age of 5, attended an open house at the Berkshire Music School Saturday, as the educational nonprofit enters its 70th year at its 30 Wendell Avenue home.
The open house featured a sample class, access to musical instruments, information for parents, refreshments... and more than a few delighted squeals, proving once again the inherent interest in making a joyful noise is not generational, and will never go out of style.
The open house featured a Music for Preschoolers class, designed to "children’s awareness of rhythm, ability to sing and move creatively to music," which
