Dear beryl lipton :

We have received your public records request. This request is being assigned to the appropriate department for a response. The department records access officer will review the request and create an effort estimate to comply with your request. Pursuant to Massachusetts General Law, if the effort estimate is more than 2 hours, we will create a proposed cost estimate and will email such estimate to your attention. Once you approve the amount and send the payment, we will begin working on your request.
If the effort estimate is less than 2 hours, we will proceed to work on the response and will send you the response once the work is completed. Please also note that Massachusetts General Law allows us to complete and send the response within 10 business days. However, the response date may be extended for any of the following reasons:
1.   Any clarification that is required from you towards this request will stop the clock. The clock will be resumed once the proper clarification is received.
2.   Payment of estimated effort – The time it takes to receive the due amount will be added to the original due date.
3.    If in the opinion of the records access officer it is determined that original due date cannot be met despite reasonable effort, the due date shall be extended based on reviewer’s judgment, subject to an additional extension of time with the permission of the Supervisor of Public Records, which we reserve the right to seek if necessary. You will be promptly notified in such case with the revised due date or will be copied on a petition to the Supervisor of Public Records.

Thank you.
