WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee last week talked about the post-pandemic "new normal," both from a public health and academic standpoint.   One item on the agenda for the panel's Thursday meeting was the revocation of an interim policy requiring that all students — even homeschoolers — participate in the district's novel coronavirus pool testing program in order to participate in in-person extracurriculars.   The committee ultimately approved the revocation on a vote of 7-0, but first it talked a little about health and safety in the "new normal."   "The culture of the high school …

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:25AM / Thursday, July 15, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Members of the town's Finance Committee Wednesday complained about being blindsided by the price tags associated with a pair of severance agreements negotiated by the Select Board and the former town manager in 2020 and ‘21.   The committee convened a special session to consider four allocations totaling $139,617 from the $150,000 reserve the Fin Comm maintains in each budget year to cover unforeseen expenses.   One transfer, $53,224 to cover snow and ice removal is typical; the town routinely under budgets for the expense because its true magnitude is unknown during budget season.   The other three were unique.   Interim Town
