11:08AM / Thursday, March 29, 2012
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A public meeting will be held to air concerns about the process for issuing building permits on Wednesday, April 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall.
The meeting will be hosted by Mayor Daniel Bianchi.
Contractors, tradesmen and any member of the public who wishes to know more about building permits and the process involved in obtaining them are invited to attend.
"This is an area of government that is regulated almost entirely at the state level, and focused on public safety and related building compliance," the mayor said. "There is little we can do about the laws. However, there may be ways that we can make the process easier and more effective for area contractors and homeowners."
Also attending will be the city’s building and fire inspectors.
