Crowdfund Request: Boston Neighborhood Slow Streets Applications

Share Embed Help

Help cover the request fees needed to free these docs! The City of Boston claims that they have to photocopy these records, despite the fact that many were submitted digitally. Fine. Let’s see the paper and see which 42 of the 47 areas are going to get ignored for safety improvements.

Backed by Jonathan Fertig, Nathan Glen Phillips, Eric C. Herot, Alexander Frieden, and 5 others.

$250.18 raised out of $237.18.

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:

This request seeks all of the applications by neighborhood organizations and individuals to the City of Boston Neighborhood Slow Streets program.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Fertig

Hi-
Considering that most of the applications were submitted digitally, I don't understand how there are no digital records of the applications.
Please review your records and provide me with any applications that were submitted digitally.
Thank you-
Jonathan Fertig

To Whom it May Concern-
When you process my request, if it's possible to scan, rather than copy, the paper documents and send me a digital file I would prefer digital delivery. It will save a lot of paper, and I'd like to be as environmentally conscious as possible.
Thank you-
Jonathan Fertig

Good Afternoon Mr. Fertig:

I did forward your recent email to the Transportation Department. The
Department informed me that they are under the impression that you have
forwarded a check to begin the work. I have not received any check from
you. Was a check sent? If so, do you know the department to which the
check was sent?
