Easthampton Mayor Pans Charter School

Easthampton Mayor Michael Tautznik says he’s not happy about a plan by Hilltown Cooperative Charter School to move to an industrial park in that city.  Tautznik says the charter school will pull essential funding from the public school system and take a valuable industrial property off the tax roles.  The K-through-8 charter school wants to move from the Brassworks Building in Haydenville to the former Jenoptik Optical Systems building in Easthampton next summer.
