To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

To whom it may concern,
Pursuant to Massachusetts General Law Chapter 66, Section 10, I'm requesting all executive session minutes generated, by the Swansea 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. Once released, I plan to make the information available to the public online, free of charge.
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

From: Mary Ann Silva

Caitlin,

I would advise that you check to make sure you are requesting public information from the correct town.

This is the Town of Wareham, not Swansea.

Wareham Town Clerk

From: Caitlin Russell

My apologies for the error in my previous email in which I requested Swansea's board minutes. I'm seeking the executive session minutes produced by the town of Wareham's board of selectmen for the years 2010-2015. Thanks so much.

From: Janet Wilson

Ms. Russell,

The Town Clerk forwarded your request for public information to me in which you are looking for copies of 2010-2105 executive session minutes. The Town Administrator denied your request for the fees to be waived therefore the cost for producing this request is $30.56.

80 pages @ .25c each = $20.00

Time for staff to make copies and re-file the minutes is $10.56. It took 30 minutes at the rate of $21.12 per hour.

Please forward me a check in the amount of $30.56 and at that time I will scan you the minutes or I can place them in the mail to you. Please be advised that the postage for mailing these minutes would be an additional $3.46 for postage.

Sincerely,

Janet Wilson
