Pittsfield Mayor Demands Spectrum Update

Facebook: Spectrum

Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer says cable giant Spectrum owes the city an annual report.

The Mayor said at a public meeting in March that Spectrum would deliver its contractually obligated annual report to the city by the end of April- but, as of May 1st, no report has been delivered. Mayor Tyer says that as of Tuesday, Pittsfield has sent a letter to Spectrum…

“…requesting that they provide us with an update as to the status of the annual report as soon as possible.”

Nearby North Adams is preparing a public meeting of its own with Spectrum on May 21st.
