The Public Services Committee reviewed the state of the city's infrastructure on Monday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Even with time and money, it would take years for the city to repair and replace much of its infrastructure.

"It's equipment and men and labor," said Public Services Superintendent Timothy Lescarbeau at Monday's meeting of the Public Services Committee.

Using that money would have been illegal because the amount in the account has to be certified by the state before it can be spent in this fiscal year.

Finance Committee member Lori-Anne Aubin attended Monday's meeting to discuss the events of the town meeting.

To the Editor:

I don't know where to start: my family, friends, and community are amazing. As soon as they heard I was in an accident they all pulled together to help me. I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. Words cannot even begin to explain how I feel. So many people are helping me one way or the other.

My family and close friend have been with me from the beginning. They have been by my side with support, comfort, encouragement, rides, and the move to get me closer to home. So many things to list. I love you all and thank you all.

There are several things going on in the community. Go Fund Me by my best friend Ally, a softball tournament, Team Becky Bracelets

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has received $5,000 from the AT&T Foundation to fund five $1,000 scholarships for undergraduate students at MCLA.

This year’s funding marks the second year AT&T has supported MCLA students: In 2013 the Foundation gave $4,000 in support of undergraduate scholarships.
