  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Transition Committee on Thursday got some sobering news about the cost estimates for site work it plans to fund from a $5 million capital gift the district received from Williams College.   Architect Dan Colli of Perkins Eastman reported that before the district even considers adding a new multi-purpose field and bleachers to the west side of the school, the district's priority items require a budget a little north of $3.7 million.   That's concerning both because the committee has targeted a goal of $1.5 million for a building endowment fund and because many in the community were hoping the
