Lynn towing bids

Todd Feathers filed this request with the Lynn City Clerk of Lynn, MA.


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) Copies of all bids submitted in response to the city's most recent request for proposals for towing contracts. This should include bids in response to the most recent RFPs for all towing zones, not just the most recent RFP if the towing zone contracts were put out to bid at different times.

2) Copies of the city's active contracts with towing providers in all towing zones.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and I intend to use the requested records to disseminate information in the public's interest.

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.
