City of Pittsfield adopts modified staffing

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, the City of Pittsfield will implement a modified staffing plan which allows for the provision of essential services while protecting the health of constituents and the public. Please note municipal offices and buildings are still closed to the public through April 7. 

During this time, city employees will be working in shifts from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Employees exempted from this special schedule include police, fire, and members of the Health Department. 

“We recognize that the closure of municipal offices to the public is a very significant, but necessary, step as we all work to contain the spread of COVID-19 in our community. The schedule for city employees allows for as much social distancing in the work place as possible while we continue to provide municipal services,” said Mayor Linda Tyer. “Together, we can all do our part to keep our community safe.” 

Community members should continue to use the city’s website,, to manage their business needs. Individuals with specific questions for city departments, should utilize the City Hall directory, 413-449-5600, during the hours of operation for assistance. 

For new updates, please visit the city’s COVID-19 page. The public is also encouraged to sign up for CodeRED, the city’s notification system; a link is available on the COVID-19 page.
