Williamstown Decides to Clear Out Water Street Lot
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
11:59AM / Thursday, February 22, 2024

05:23AM / Friday, February 16, 2024
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board on Monday discussed finding a way to designate areas in the Spruces Park where dogs can and cannot be kept off leash.   The discussion was a continuation of last year's annual town meeting, where the meeting voted to take no action on a proposal to change the town's bylaw allowing dogs to be off leash or "under voice command" in the General Residence District.   Subsequent to the meeting, town officials realized there is a bylaw on the books that the Select Board, acting in its capacity as the town's Parks Commission, enacted in 1977 and amended 1998 that requires animals to be leashed in town parks.   That
