Crane Hit With $1,000 Daily Fine And May Have To Close
Crane Stationery Company in North Adams operated for a second day Monday in violation of conditions set by North Adams' mayor, prompting the city to impose the first of what could be $1,000 daily fines.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that Health Inspector Michael Moore issued an emergency order to a Crane executive on Sunday ordering the company to comply with conditions set the week before by Mayor Thomas Bernard.
Also on top of the financial penalties, the city of North Adams told Crane it could be subject to an order to close and face the loss of licenses or permits it holds for its plant in the Robert Hardman Industrial Park off Route 8.
Crane has the right to appeal within seven days, according to the terms of the order, must first comply with the city's directives.
