Congrats Pittsfield for the single most biggest waste of money. 4.6 million for the biggest piece of crap in the city. In a year I can guarentee the park will be back to the shit-hole it is... This is why people are always unhappy with the Council/Mayor.. bone head decions like this.. you can put as many coats of polish on it.. the same scum will still sell drugs there... the same people will fight there.. it will be just a cleaner plate for them to bleed on.. Congrats Pittsfield... here's your sign!

There is no economic downturn in Pittsfield. New multi million dollar park, new 200 million dollar school, but it took the whole city crying to get the normal funding for the GD library. Why??

Because there is no way to siphon money off of that line item. The others are ripe for the picking however.

These dodo's are going to spend $6 million to ruin a park. No ice skating, no Pop Warner, no skateboard park and no carnival for Babe Ruth. Another case of this disaster of a mayor not knowing the people of the town he supposedly runs, more like runs into the ground, and spending money that doesn't need to be spent. They say $4.6 million, but what project that the city is involved in doesn't run over cost? None. What a shame for the kids who use the park legitimately.
