05:32PM / Wednesday, September 13, 2023
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council slapped OTT Taxi with a 90-day probation after police reported several violations since the taxi company was warned back in February.   Documents for the show cause hearing on Tuesday had raised the possibility of revocation of the business's license to operate but councilors weren't convinced that the violations were egregious enough.    Specifically, interim Police Chief Mark Bailey said owner John Lord was observed twice in July driving On Time Taxi cabs, which he is not licensed to operate, and that vehicles owned by OTT employees have been ticketed for being parked in front of the River Street office beyond the

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:49AM / Tuesday, September 12, 2023
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council will hold a public hearing on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. on whether to pull OTT Taxi's operating license.   The taxi service was put on probation back in February for violations including unlicensed and underage drivers and unmarked cars being used to pick up fares.   Councilors at the time had little sympathy for owner John Lord's claims that he didn't know or understand the city's ordinance regulating taxi services.   But they did not wish disrupt the livelihoods of his drivers and the customers who needed the company's services and so issued a "stern warning" and 30 days

North Adams Planners Give Nod to Language That Could Boost Development
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:38AM / Tuesday, September 12, 2023

The Central Business District, in red, covers the downtown from Ashland to River Street and the corners of Union and Eagle streets.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Starbuck's interest in a corner lot in the city sparked a nearly hourlong discussion on the wisdom of giving the Planning Board the flexibility to change setbacks in the Central Business District.    The zoning language change was brought to the City Council by Mayor Jennifer Macksey back in July. It would give the Planning Board the authority to modify or eliminate the maximum 10-foot setback by special permit, largely to allow parking in the front of a new building rather than in the back.   The
