Est. Completion None


From: David Weimer

To Whom It May Concern:

According to a statement released by the City of Boston to WGBH reported on 1 November here: https://www.wgbh.org/news/local-news/2021/11/01/i-have-no-place-to-go-hundreds-leave-mass-and-cass-as-city-clears-tents:

“The City commends the dedication, compassion and professionalism of the City of Boston employees who helped connect 17 people with pathways to transitional housing today … Of those, 9 have already toured new apartments. These efforts also resulted in the storage or removal of 16 tents in the area.”

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) Any records relating to the nature of these 17 “pathways to transitional housing,” including records about partnerships, duration, locations, and agreements relating to these pathways

2) Any records supporting the claim that 9 people “already toured new apartments” including records about partnerships, duration, locations, and agreements relating to these apartments

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.
