Crowdfund Request: Uxbridge Peacock Incidents

Share Embed Help

I grew up in the small town of Uxbridge, MA, where there were at least two separate incidents of peacocks on the loose from the zoo or someone’s farm. The stories of those were the talk of the town when they happened, but now that I’m out in the world away from Uxbridge I want everyone else to know the story of these peacocks in a way no one can refute. So I did what any good citizen would do and filed a public records request with the town police department for any emails about these feathered friends.

Unfortunately, being such a small town means the good people of Uxbridge are charging me $115 to produce and send me these peacock emails I’m requesting from the police department. And further still, being a college student means that on my own I cannot afford to spend my own money in the pursuit of peacock justice, as much as I would love to. That’s where you come in. I’m seeking help from my friends and family on this journey, and even though it might sound like a lofty goal, every little bit helps. Even if only a small portion of the total charge is raised through this project, I would be incredibly grateful for your help in helping me tell the story of two feisty little peacocks with a dream.

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Emails sent or received by department officials and employees, between the years 2012 and 2018, which include the non-case sensitive words "peacock" or "Waldo".

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 there are fees, 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.

Sincerely,

Adrien Salzberg

Hi Kelly,

I wanted to let you know I've received your letter and am working on gathering the funds. Apologies for the late add-on since this would probably add some labor, but would it be possible to also receive an amended fee estimate that would include pictures and/or audio recordings (like from walkie talkies) from police about the peacock chase?

Best,

Adrien

Hello Kelly,

I was wondering if I could limit the time period of my request to 2018 only and receive an amended fee estimate based on that. Please let me know if that would be possible.

Best,

Adrien
