From: Caitlin Russell

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:

Pursuant to Massachusetts General Law Chapter 66, Section 10, I'm requesting all executive session minutes generated, by the Board of Selectmen for the years 2010 through the of end 2015.
Massachusetts law requires that executive session minutes be reviewed and released regularly, and that once the stated purpose for a particular executive session has ended, the minutes of the executive sessions are to be made public.
Please be advised that denial of this request, or redactions made to released materials must be accompanied by citations of the exemptions you believe allow you to withhold the information requested.

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 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Caitlin Russell

Dear Ms. Russell,

The Mayor forwarded your request for Executive Session minutes to me since I am the President of the City Council. I would like to speak with you about the request. Please let me know what number I can reach you at. I can be reached at 781 526-1285.

Thank you.

Diane LeBlanc

Council President

From: Wilson, Kara

Hello Ms. Russell.
We are in the process of preparing, approving and sending you your request for Executive Session Minutes. Within the process of approving minutes at our last Council meeting we have found there was another executive session meeting we did not initially have and were not able to vote on. We will have your request to you by next Tuesday but may we have an extension on these particular minutes (10/11/2011) due to the fact we need time to put them on our City Council Docket and have approved at a Council meeting. Our next City Council meeting is on March 13, 2017. Would it be ok to send you these minutes after this date so we can approve the minutes at the meeting?

Thank you.
Kara

From: Caitlin Russell

That works for me. Thank you!
