TOWN OF NORTH BROOKFIELD
PUBLIC RECORDS ACCESS GUIDELINES
Effective January 1, 2017, the Massachusetts Public Records Law, G.L. c.66 and c.4, §7(26) provides that a municipality must, within 10 business days (Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays), respond to a request for records by providing access to or a copy of such records, or explaining any delay or denial. These guidelines are intended to assist members of the public seeking access to public records in the care, custody and control of the Town of North Brookfield.
The attached policy and request form are for use by anyone looking to obtain public records that are in the custody of the town. While the form is not required to make a request, it is a guideline of the information that is needed in order to fill a request.
Any questions, please contact the Master Records Access Officer at 508-867-0203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
