By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:31AM / Wednesday, February 13, 2019
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In more than three decades as the town's principal assessor, Bill Barkin has acquired an encyclopedic knowledge of the town's properties and a teacher's knack for explaining how property appraisal works.   "It takes a long time to develop that verbiage and that lingo and get it down so that people understand that you're not trying to dance around the subject," Barkin said recently.

04:19PM / Sunday, February 10, 2019
