Say what you may but John Barrett ran the place in a far better way than he was given credit for and if being a whistle blower got him canned and I believe it did people should be asking what the hell is going on. The same company that designed the flawed unemployment website are now being paid to design an automated toll collecting system for the Mass Pike that will film your number plate and send you a bill. You can thank the governor for both of these fiasco's

20 years ago I heard that the city was paying $80,000 annually for the space the buses sit on overnight. It may have gone up since. Ya think? Nobody wants to talk about it though.

Well you wouldn't want the City Of Pittsfield to violate the rights of any of its employees, no matter what they do, and deprive them of taxpayer $$$$$$$$$$ they're not earning. When Ruberto was mayor at least one cop was collecting his paychecks for an extended period of time while he wasn't working. He was hired, fired, for some alleged deviant behavior, reinstated, suspended with pay, for 2-years? I believe, and then fired again for being dishonest.

It's been over 3 weeks since Monterosso was placed on leave and an investigation begun. Since then he has continued to draw FULL PAY for NOT WORKING AND NOT DOING ANYTHING . LOCKS WERE CHANGED AT THE AGENCY.. He has now received over $6000 for not working..

How long does it take to investigagt ethe allegations of a dozen employees for a probationary employee?

Meanwhile NOTHING is happening at Berkshireworks staff wait in fear of his return and the agency operates without any direction or focus.

Well its all the taxpayers fault for being cheep and stingy for not overcompensating the inferior barnyard waste in exchange for their offensive, arrogant, antagonistic, unacceptable, insulting, degrading attitude towards the taxpayers and citizens of Pittsfield. How can Monsterosso be expected to survive on $2000 a week in Pittsfield for not working? I hope Bianchi comes up with an additional over compensation position for Monsterosso so he can supplement the $2000 a week he's collecting while he's not earning it. If the taxpayers don't wake up soon, we're not going to be able to afford to attract the inferior barnyard waste were attracting now.

When Monterosso was hired, after an exhausted search no doubt in the outhouses of Kentucky and West Virginia for a candidate of quality, someone of desirable qualities compatible with Pittsfield's high standards for candidates of quality, and whose services were no longer desired in Kentucky, or West Virginia, Pittsfield's crummy current mayor, Bianchi, said, and I quote, "I am looking forward to his tenure," the mayor said."

Seems you mother doesn't have high standards if she will accept your 1 incher. Can't get any lower standards than that. No quality over quantity either. What you need to do is tongue exercises and learn to satisfy your mother that way. A worn out skank like hers can be licked to satisfaction. Just plan on getting a lot of goo on your face in the process. Yummy.

Well if one believes anything printed in Sunday's Berkshire Eagle, Monterosso is not just an "ass" man, but a completely creepy dirty ASS. A creepy sexual deviant Neanderthal who can not control himself with the ladies, ALLEGEDLY! A real creepy lady-killer! Bianchi's creepy friend, the one Bianchi chose over ALL the others, allegedly enjoys slapping the rumps women against their will, and talking dirty to them, and/or in front of them. He sounds like a real winner. No wonder Bianchi chose him. Every dollar, including the "$30,672 $$$$$$$$$$ in taxpayers money handed over to Bianchi's creepy friend, Monterosso, between April 9 and July 31, should be taken from Bianchi. Every single dollar Bianchi's creepy friend Monterosso received should be taken out of Bianchi's pay. And if as reported, the agreement hammered out between Bianchi/ the city's Personnel Department, and his creepy friend Monterosso included insurance, Bianchi and his ugly wife can pay for Monterosso's insurance too. Bianchi needs to GO! NOW! Bianchi and his creepy friend should be investigated. The only "black eye" to the city in relation to the scandal of BerkshireWorks is that Bianchi has not been forcibly removed from city hall, the locks changed, and Bianchi investigated.

What happened with the cop who was fired from the PPD late last fall(2013)? Are Bianchi and his brown nosed "acting" chief covering up another scandal?
