Awaiting Appeal


From: Caitlin Russell

To whom it may concern,
Pursuant to Massachusetts General Law Chapter 66, Section 10, I'm requesting all executive session minutes generated, by the Easton Board of Selectmen for the years 2010 through the of end 2015.
Massachusetts law requires that executive session minutes be reviewed and released regularly, and that once the stated purpose for a particular executive session has ended, the minutes of the executive sessions are to be made public. Once released, I plan to make the information available to the public online, free of charge.
Please be advised that denial of this request, or redactions made to released materials must be accompanied by citations of the exemptions you believe allow you to withhold the information requested.
I'm requesting that any fees be waived, as I believe the release of these materials is in the public interest, however, if fees cannot be waived, I ask that you include a good faith estimate of the anticipated fees in your response. I also request that the materials be provided electronically in an email attachment, or if that is not possible, on a CD-ROM. If neither of these options are available, I'd be happy to receive the documents via snail mail, or come to your municipal offices in person to pick them up.
If you are in need of any further clarification regarding this request, please do not hesitate to contact me at 774-634-6176 with your questions. If I do not pick up, please leave me a voicemail and I will be sure to get back to you. Thank you for your attention to this request.

I’m appealing the rejection of a public records request for the review and release of Board of Selectmen executive session minutes for the years 2010-2015. I believe the records custodian’s failure to respond at all, despite numerous follow ups, is effectively a rejection of the request.
