FOI Request

Boston's Nemo Winter Storm Related Tickets

Requested by morisy on Feb. 12, 2013 for the Boston Inspectional Services Department of Boston, MA and fufilled on March 5, 2013

Status: Completed


From Michael Morisy on Feb. 12, 2013:

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of any databases, reports, or other data sources used to generate and analyze the ticket data featured in this story:

http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/allston_brighton/2013/02/boston_has_issued_more_than_50.html

If summary reports including addresses, current status of violation, ticket type and fine total are kept, please respond with those and not the underlying tickets themselves.

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 fees cannot be waived, 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,

Michael Morisy
