PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city of Pittsfield, through its Human Services Advisory Council, is asking residents to comment on the human service needs in the city.
The HSAC is an 11-member advisory committee that makes funding recommendations to the mayor on how the city should allocate its human services funding. One of the considerations that the HSAC uses to make those recommendations is to consider the views of Pittsfield residents.
In the past, the HSAC held a meeting during which the public could come before the council and comment on human-service needs. New for this year, the HSAC instead is soliciting comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments may also be submitted by phone at 413-499-9450; teletype at 413-499-9340; or by regular mail to Robert Cornwell, Pittsfield Department of Community Development, 70 Allen St., Pittsfield, MA 01201.
This opportunity is also being promoted at CityofPittsfield.org. Deadline to submit comments is Friday, April 27.
