By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
06:50PM / Wednesday, December 15, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The mayor-elect used hearing of visitors at the beginning of the City Council on Tuesday night to ask the council to reject two issues on the agenda: the sale of the Mohawk and the appointments to committees.   She got most of one but nothing of the other.    Jennifer Macksey, who will be sworn in on Jan. 1, 2022, as the city's first mayor, said it made no sense to "make a decision of this magnitude" regarding the Mohawk in the waning days of Thomas Bernard's term.   "Why would deny the incoming mayor the opportunity to be part of this process and to have my own input on this?" she asked.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
09:47PM / Tuesday, December 14, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday avoided killing the sale of the Mohawk Theater — or passing it — by kicking it into the next administration.    The compromise was the product of talks between Councilors Keith Bona and Benjamin Lamb to address both the council's authority in such sales and the reality that a new mayor will be taking office on Jan. 1.   "It's definitely, there's emotions in this, there's passion," said Bona. "This is history and this, you know, I've had my main issues about the process.    "And I feel it's been, it lacks some transparency."    Jennifer

Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:39AM / Tuesday, December 14, 2021
