Councilors approved Tyer’s proposals for the police and fire departments including money for additional officers in the wake of recent shootings in the city.

“I believe strongly that we put forward a sound budget that’s reasonable and continues to provide for the types of services that the people of Pittsfield expect and deserve,” said Tyer.
