DALTON, Mass. — The Berkshire Money Management team announced that "once-in-a-lifetime" employee, Zack Marcotte, has been promoted to Director of Financial Planning. 
Marcotte began working at Berkshire Money Management during his senior year of high school. He has witnessed and participated in the building of the firm from startup to success. Marcotte's 13 years working side-by-side with BMM's professionals has provided the kind of on-the-job training that led to his desire to become a financial advisor.
"Financial planning is the art of figuring out what you don't know," said BMM founder and CEO, Allen Harris. "It's tax planning, not tax compliance. It's increasing income, not decreasing lifestyle. It's  making sure you don't run out of money in retirement. The only team I want to trust with those high-value objectives is the team led by Zack Marcotte."
Marcotte recently earned an MS in Personal Financial Planning.
In his free time, Zack enjoys wood working, going to the gym, and venturing into the wilderness with his dog, also a long-time member of the BMM family, Dexter.

Dalton Police Department Looks For Kennel Options

By Sabrina DammsiBerkshires Staff
DALTON, Mass.—The Police Department is looking for solutions for the lack of kennels in the area for displaced animals. 
When the Sonsini Animal Shelter closed the department converted their cells into a "very temporary kennel" to house dogs for short term situations, Police Chief Deanna Strout said. 
She added that although the Sonsini Animal Shelter looks like it is opening in North Adams, the new location will be out of the department’s reach.
The other immediate option would be to utlilize Berkshire Humane Society, but Strout said this option is too expensive. She said they want an "outrageous amount of money" to hold a space for the department.
"The amount of dogs that we would bring there, it's so minimal. It was upward of like $25,000 I think. We're talking maybe 5 to 10 dogs a year at most. So that's just not an option for us," Stout said. 
Strout said the department does not take surrendered dogs so the situation is manageable, at the moment. 
Also, Animal Control Officer Levi Lisi said most of the time the animals are picked up withing 24 or 48 hours.
