To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
I am requesting all official prevailing wage schedules issued to contractors in New Bedford from December 1st 2011 to December 1st 2014.
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 calendar days, as the statute requires.
The Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development through the Department of Labor Standards is the regulatory agency for prevailing wage schedules. In response to your request below, all of the official prevailing wage schedules that are issued to contractors in New Bedford are posted on the DLS website and can be readily attained for free by putting in New Bedford and/or City of New Bedford into the first query window. It will bring up all the schedules. There is no need to put in the query year. http://prevailingwage.detma.org/Reprint.aspx
