Dear City of Newton,
Pursuant to the state open records law Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 4, sec. 7, cl. 26; ch. 66, secs. 10 to 18, I am writing to request current vehicle fleet lists for the Department of Public Works and the Parks and Recreation Department. The information I am requesting needs to include year, make, model, type of vehicle, and usage of each vehicle.
If either department does not maintain these public records, please let me know who does and include the proper custodian's name and address.
An electronic PDF or Word document is sufficient for my request. If this is not possible, please let me know what type of format is available.
As provided by the open records law, I will expect your response within ten (10) business days. See Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 66, Sec. 10(b).
If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial, including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
