North Adams Preparing to Launch New Website

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city is finally getting a new website designed to be far more user-friendly than the current one. It's set to be launched on Aug. 24.
 
The city's website is more than a decade old — ancient in internet terms — and hasn't had much in the way of upgrades since.
