Pittsfield Receives Insurance Grant to Inspect Parks

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

City Council accepted a number of grants and referred several matters to the Finance Subcommittee. 
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city received a $10,000 grant from the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association to inspect all playgrounds and provide inspection trainings.
 
The City Council accepted the $10,000 grant Tuesday. Superintendent of Parks Chris Evangelisto told the council that it will allow the city to inspect its own parks instead of outsourcing the service.
 
"Previously MIIA had a risk assessor they would send out. They haven't done it in three-plus years but that is why we went after this grant," Evangelisto said. "To get an unbiased inspection by a third party and have the ability to do that in house."    
 
The initial inspection would allow for a comprehensive safety inspection of all playgrounds and playground equipment.
