An evening robocall March 4, regarding dog licenses, irked some city residents this week.

The Berkshire Eagle reports the call, using the city's CodeRED notification system, which sends out emergency information and general community notices, requested that residents who have not already licensed their dogs do so.

Mayor Thomas Bernard acknowledged the frustration in a Facebook post.

Bernard also noted that residents can opt out of the community notices and only receive emergency alerts, and will work to update the city's website with clearer instructions on how to do so.

In a related matter, the North Adams Housing Authority has again received high marks from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The city's public housing agency received a score of 94 out of 100 possible points in HUD's annual Assessment Status Report of the most recent fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30.

The score puts the housing authority in the category of a "high performer."
