How do I request a copy of a public record?

Most documents created or received by the Board of Selectmen are considered "public documents" and are available upon request. To request a copy of a public document in the custody of the Board of Selectmen please submit the following information to the Board in writing: 

  1. Your name
  2. Your address
  3. The name and date of the document requested. 

Please note that Massachusetts General Law protects certain types of documents from public release; for example personnel records and pending litigation are exempt from public disclosure.
