PITTSFIELD — The City Council unanimously accepted Tuesday night a $25,000 gift from a local credit union to help defray costs associated with the construction of a shelter in Durant Park.
W. Kent Hudson Jr., senior vice president and chief operations officer for the Greylock Federal Credit Union Board of Directors, notified Mayor Linda Tyer by mail on Jan. 13 that the board had approved the donation towards the construction of a permanent and fully handicapped accessible, 24-foot by 34-foot, four-post, metal shelter at Durant Park, which will be used for community events and concerts.
“We hope that the City Council will accept this donation so that we as a community can create desirable spaces for our neighbors and ourselves,” he wrote. “It is a pleasure to partner with you to provide experiences and continued benefits for the community whose best interest we share.”
