LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Voters went to the polls on Tuesday to decide to keep the incumbent in the one race on the ballot.
For Select Board, voters opted 2 to 1 for incumbent John Goerlach, with 215 votes, over challenger Brianne Morrison, who garnered 92.
Goerlach, who chairs the committee, will be returning for his sixth three-year term since 2006.

Elizabeth Drury, running unopposed, was elected to a three-year term as library trustee with 285 votes.
Also running unopposed, Christopher Dodig secured a second three-year term as moderator with 274, and Joseph Szczepaniak III was returned to the Planning Board for another five-year term by 270 votes.
With only one race on the ballot this year, turnout was low with 324, or about 14 percent, of the town's approximately 2,300 registered voters casting ballots.

Work To Connect Lanesborough Water Lines to Berkshire Village Underway

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — After many years with an independent water system, Berkshire Village is being connected to the Lanesborough water district and is undergoing infrastructure modernization.
"I am just so thankful to them, [the fire and water district] did a lot of the heavy lifting on this. They've done all the work with the USDA, and we've been included every step of the way," Berkshire Co-Operative President Lori DiLego said. "They went to bat for us in many different areas."
This was made possible by advocacy work done by the Lanesborough Village Fire and Water District for Berkshire Co-Operative Water Works, which resulted in the village receiving $2,395,200 from the United States Department of Agriculture to extend the main.
Construction began last week and includes the installation of wider pipes that will provide better water pressure to residents in the village.  Road construction is projected to end by December and properties will be hooked up to the new main in the spring of 2022.
