To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
A list of members on the Board of Selectmen and the following information:
1. What salary each receives; what additional money they are paid if they are in a leadership position; for longevity (please specify number of years); and expense accounts per month or year (please specify).
2. The names of selectmen who have health insurance from the town; what it costs them, and what it costs the town to provide it for each of them.
If you have any questions about this request, please feel free to contact me at 617-929-2805.
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 business days, as the statute requires.
The Board of Selectmen members are:
Mathew Muratore $4500 annual stipend
Belinda Brewster $4,000 "
John Mahoney $4,000 "
Kenneth Tavares $4,000 "
Anthony Provenzano $4,000 "
No expense accounts and no longevity. No other pay at all.
Town health insurance is taken by Selectman Muratore and Selectman Brewster. For Selectman Brewster, the Town contributes 80% and she contributes 20% (that's a cost to her of about $3500/year).
Selectman Muratore pays 100% of his Town Health Insurance and the town contributes nothing towards it.
Our benefits coordinator is out of the office today, however, if you need more specifics, please let me know and I'll pass it along to her.
