CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Selectmen on Wednesday signed a long-term contract with Time Warner Cable.

The regional agreement's for 10 years — but seniors only have two days to apply for a monthly discount included in the contract.

In other business, McKinney said the town is looking into a dumping area off East Road.

"The woods are littered like a dump," he said, including car parts, heating oil tanks, tires, lawn mowers and a broken down shed. There

Maps of the proposed bike trail route will be reviewed at a public information on Wednesday evening at Greylock School.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city is laying down plans for a bike path in the West End.

The trail would run from downtown to the city's western border on Route 2, cutting mainly through municipal properties.

The approximately 3-mile route would line up with another 2.5 miles in Williamstown near Galvin Road.

"I think the route is really cool," Mayor Richard Alcombright said in a presentation prior to Tuesday's City Council meeting. "It takes in some city assets that weren't talked about several years ago."
