  15. Letter: No pay for teachers, no money for schoolRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Apr 2 | Berkshire Eagle

    If the city of Pittsfield can't afford to pay its teachers and wants to cut spending to the tune of $1.3 million, how can the city plan to spend $44 million on a new school? If you can't pay the bills you already have, why are you planning to purchase something you really don't need? Sure the school needs work, and you may need to raise taxes for the repairs, but isn't that what you do with properties? You repair them? Do you purchase a new house just because your current one needs work? I'm afraid to think how many families have left our wonderful county to hopefully find a job and a living wage. As a matter of fact, maybe the city should wait to see what its census figures are before making such a huge mistake.
