By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
12:14PM / Friday, October 14, 2022
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board on Wednesday decided to set a late November deadline for the non-profit seeking to be assigned the town's right of first refusal on a 10-acre parcel of farmland off Oblong Road.   A portion of the Phelps property currently used for grazing by Sweet Brook Farm is under a purchase and sales agreement for $745,000. But because the land previously was conserved under Chapter 61 of Massachusetts General Law and eligible for a lower assessment for local property tax purposes, the town has a right of first refusal to either purchase the land itself (for the agreed-upon price) or allow a qualified non-profit to buy it for purposes of

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town's diversity committee last week decided it needs a little more time to respond to an evolving purpose statement its members have been discussing with members of the Select Board.

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:41PM / Tuesday, October 04, 2022
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Fire District is in the market for a new treasurer after Cory Thurston announced at last week's Prudential Committee meeting that he plans to step down from the office.   Thurston has served in the capacity since he was elected in May 2019 to what, at the time, was the district's clerk/treasurer position.   A lot changed in the three years that followed. The district broke the clerk and treasurer roles into two separate jobs, and it moved them from elected offices to positions appointed by the five-person Prudential Committee.   "That was changed from an elected official a few years ago to make sure the district had a
