  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Finance Committee on Wednesday reviewed the fiscal 2019 spending plan for the Mount Greylock Regional School District, and its members were pleased to hear that the district plans to maintain or add to its programs with only a modest impact on the town's assessment.   The newly expanded region benefited from no increase in health insurance rates from FY18, as did the town.   For Williamstown's taxpayers, who will see a single assessment for preK-12 education on this May's town meeting warrant, the middle-high school portion of the bill is up by $226,521, a 3.54 percent increase from $6.4 million in FY18 to $6.6 million
