Just a friendly reminder on what this is all about. When you go to a grocery store, make a list, get input from family, and send only 1 person to get in and get out. That should be for everything you feel the need to go get while out. We need to be serious about this stay at home request and social distancing.

We will get through this, better and stronger than ever before.

❤️ Stay Safe, Stay Healthy ❤️

😊 And Smile 😊

Welcome to Town. Best of luck on your new venture.

As Chief, it’s good to get back to work after not being allowed in Town Buildings for 2 weeks following a vacation I took. My thanks to my dedicated Officers for keeping everything together and remaining in constant contact with me for issues. Together we will get through this, remember to Social Distance yourself, Stay Healthy, Stay Safe. I firmly believe we will come out of this situation a lot better, stronger and more caring. The main point is, 😊 KEEP SMILING 😊. We will get through this.

Sharing for our volunteer Fire Department.

To our town residents and our friends.

Our department has decided to cancel our annual fundraiser mailing and this year's Fireman's Ball that is usually held this time of year. With the uncertainties related to this pandemic as well as some people being out of work and businesses closing, we thought it best not to ask for donations and monetary support during this very difficult and unusual time. Your health and well being are above all else and we hope that we can get through this healthy, happy and stronger than ever.

Please stay strong and keep smiling. Together we will overcome.

SUSPENSION OF OPERATIONS DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
With respect to processing LTCs and FIDs:

• All applicants should be directed to mail in their new or renewal applications.
• Applicant's should be advised to include a check for the application fee along with the application, and that no processing will be initiated without the appropriate fee included.
• Applications are available on the FRB website here: https://www.mass.gov/how-to/apply-for-a-firearms-license.
• For new applicants, agencies should consider temporarily delaying the in-person portion of the licensing process including interviews, fingerprinting and photographs in order to comply with the Governor’s social distancing guidelines.
• For licensees who apply for a renewal prior to the expiration of their license (and who get a receipt acknowledging so), their license will remain valid until the agency approves or denies it. As a result, delaying the in-person portion of the licensing process will not prejudice these licensees.
• For licensees who apply for renewal after the expiration of their LTC, c.140, sec.131(i) states that for the purposes of c.269. sec.10 an LTC shall be deemed valid for a period not to exceed 90 days beyond the expiration date unless the LTC is revoked. Note this provision applies only to LTC and not FID Cards.

Town of Cheshire

Please read, important information here.

Good afternoon everyone,

With the recent updates of the COVID-19 situation, it is prudent that the Town take certain actions to protect its employees and in light of the ever-evolving situation here in the Commonwealth, the difficult decision has been made to close town buildings to the public, effective tomorrow morning, March 17, 2020, until further notice. All town activities/programs are cancelled, as well. This decision is being made out of an abundance of caution to attempt to limit in-person contact while also continuing to provide basic services to residents and business owners. The Town has also begun to take the necessary steps to cancel non-essential government meetings. This unfortunately includes meetings of all public bodies until appropriate accommodations can be made for public access.

Due to the physical configuration of our offices and buildings, it is not possible for our employees to maintain proper social barrier distances. We also operate with a very minimal staff and each position is absolutely essential to the efficient operation of the Town. In order to protect our employees, we are asking that all public interactions be strictly limited. If a meeting is absolutely necessary, we ask that appointments be made ahead of time and that you keep a log of who you have interacted with. Town Hall will remain locked and the public will be encouraged to communicate with Town staff via telephone or the internet. As we all know, this is also a critical time for local revenue. However, because staff health must take priority, we will arrange to encourage and promote online payments to all practical extent and provide a locked drop box for residents to drop off payments.

While we certainly understand this situation is not ideal, we are proceeding with the well-being of our citizens and staff in mind. We encourage everyone to closely follow information from the Massachusetts Department of Health (DPH), our Board of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and exercise good judgement and caution.

COVID-19 Update:
Good Evening, the NB-REPC has been busy communicating out to the communities we represent. Today we had several meetings with organizations in Williamstown, North Adams and Cheshire.

We have also participated in numerous conference calls with MEMA, DPH and many others.

We have created an informational flyer that we are providing to restaurants and placing the other in public places. These are good practice flyers regarding hygiene during this time.

We continue to work with our local, state and federal partners to determine best courses of action and the best information to disseminate to the community.

To those of your sharing our concerns, supporting our mission and partaking in best practices, WE THANK YOU!

Keep Clean,

Northern Berkshire Emergency Planning Committee

From our Northern Berkshire Partners.

Regional Coronavirus COVID-19 Update:

The Northern Berkshire Regional Emergency Planning Committee (NBREPC) wishes to advise our partners that a very informative meeting was held this morning. The focus of the meeting was to share concerns, plans, expectations, and the active measures we are taking to help mitigate the effects of the coronavirus on our citizens.

Although we know we will experience additional cases and are prepared, the actions we have already taken will have a positive impact throughout our region. Our local schools have been completely cleaned and disinfected, our 9-1-1 dispatchers have been provided with a modified call query in an attempt to isolate potential coronavirus cases and we continue to monitor the Board of Health, Department of Health and CDC recommendations.

We assure you that communication has been open and existing relationships with local, state and federal partners have been enhanced to meet our growing needs and concerns. The NBREPC has activated their management team, who communicates directly with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). Our leaders are listening. This is apparent by Governor Baker’s enactment of a State of Emergency this afternoon.

We understand that this is overwhelming to many. Please do not allow panic and fear to prevail. As a reminder, there are a lot of proactive things we can do as a community to limit risks.

These include:
1.Remain Calm
2.Wash your hands
3.Disinfect commonly touched services
4.Limit unnecessary exposure to large crowds
5.Contact your physician if you have flu-like symptoms
6.If you need to call 9-1-1, provide as much information about your symptoms as possible and understand that dispatchers may ask you additional questions
7.Know that while on-scene response may look different, our first responders are trained to act appropriately, efficiently and in your best interests. Please be patient.

Thank you for your continued support,

Respectfully,
Amalio Jusino
NBREPC
Co-Chairman

MassDOT Announces Temporary Closure of Southern Section of Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Closure is necessary to facilitate Phase I resurfacing operations

LANESBOROUGH AND CHESHIRE – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing that the southern section of the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail will be closed to the public beginning on Monday, March 16. The closure is necessary to facilitate Phase I of the resurfacing project that seeks to upgrade an 11-mile section of the rail trail.

The closure of the southern section of rail trail is anticipated to be in place through July 2020. The following restrictions will be in place during the closure:

• There will be no public access to or on the rail trail from Berkshire Mall Connector Road in Lanesborough north to Church Street in Cheshire.
• The Berkshire Mall Connector Road rail trail parking lots will be closed to the public.

The northern section of rail trail, from Church Street in Cheshire to Lime Street in Adams, will remain open to the public. The parking for this section will be available at the Cheshire Elementary School and on Rail Road Street in Cheshire and at the Adams Visitor Center and Russell Field in Adams.

Phase II of the project will include the resurfacing of the northern section of the rail trail, and is anticipated to occur late summer.

The contractor for the project is J.H..Maxymillian of Pittsfield. The project has an estimated cost of $3,241,235.

All scheduled work is weather dependent and may be impacted due to an emergency situation.
