PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The final payment for the school bus fleet is moving to the city's side of the budget.   At the public hearing on the School Department's proposed budget Wednesday, Superintendent Jason McCandless said the $558,469 payment is being pulled from the budget request.   That drops the schools' requested allocation to $60,492,869 — a $426,531 increase from last year.
