We have received the following update from our Municipal Aggregate Program: "Since our initial meeting, We have been working with Homefield to secure approval to move forward. We were notified late yesterday they have received internal approval to move forward with the group. We are now waiting for final pricing and term length options to share with the group. Market pricing has begun to move up from the low point we discussed and we are working diligently at securing the best possible rates and terms throughout this week. Our goal is to have a more detailed communication early to mid next week once rates and term options are finalized, followed by a signing date of late next week or early the following week. We will keep you updated." You may have received a letter from Constellation. You do not need to take any action to remain on the city aggregate program and will switch automatically to Homefield when we have finalized the contract. The current Constellation rate is .121/kWh we anticipate that the Homefield rate will be approximately .08/kWh

Lifted
Boil Order DATE: March 29, 2024 AFFECTED AREA: 500 block of East Washington St., East to East Side Health & Rehabilitation Center. This includes Washington Ct. Pringles St. and Liberty Ct. (see attached Map) At about 10:00 AM on March 28, 2024, the City of Pittsfield water system in the affected area lost pressure due to a water main break repair. This caused the affected area to lose volume and fall below the 20 Psi threshold. The BOIL ORDER will remain in effect until laboratory sampling confirms that water quality has been fully restored. You will receive notification at that time. Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for five minutes, and cool before using. Or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.
