By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
05:30PM / Tuesday, June 28, 2022

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Despite pushback from neighbors, the Licensing Board on Monday approved a liquor license transfer from a long-shuttered restaurant to Camp Arrow Wood located on Cloverdale Street.

The unanimous vote changed the location, manager, and management/operating agreement from The Elbow Room to the camp, which is a venture of Mill Town Capital. The Elbow Room has been closed for about five years.

It was approved in October 2021 but was kicked back by the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission because the transfer also required a change of location and public notice to abutters, which was provided in mid-June.

10:00AM / Tuesday, June 28, 2022
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city of Pittsfield will conduct smoke and dye testing in the months ahead to help detect illegal inflow connections to sanitary sewer systems, which can lead to costly repairs for the taxpayer.    In advance of this work the city is embarking on an educational campaign to build awareness around the detrimental impacts of inflow.   Inflow is stormwater (rain or snow melt) that enters the sanitary sewer system.
