Tyer To Give Pittsfield's State Of The City Address Monday
Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer is preparing for her State Of The City address Monday.
Tyer tells WAMC her speech in the city’s new Taconic High School building will look forward to 2019, but will also cover what she describes as “a highlight year” for Pittsfield in 2018.
“We were able to tax rate for our residential and commercial customers," said the mayor. "We’ve been able to enter into a municipal aggregation system that has been significant savings for our residents.”
The first-term Democrat also touted the city’s improved infrastructure – citing road work – and the recent announcement that online retailer Wayfair will bring a new call center and 300 jobs to the Berkshires’ largest community.
