Charlton union seeks Craver's e-mail
June 09, 2010
CHARLTON — The Charlton Police Alliance Union has requested a year's worth of Town Administrator Robin Craver's e-mails.
The union submitted a written public records request Monday, June 7 for all e-mails sent to or received by Craver from June 3, 2009, to June 3 of this year. The request, originally submitted to Town Clerk Darlene Tully, also includes all attachments and copies of e-mails to and from any other town e-mail address Craver may use.
Selectmen Chairman Peter Boria confirmed receiving the request, from Tully, and said the town intends to comply within the 10 days allowed under the law.
"The town administrator is working on a reply to send back to the attorney," Boria said.
The town is working to come up with a cost to provide the e-mails, according to Boria. Craver has issued an early cost estimate of $83,600, excluding legal fees, in an e-mail to selectmen, according to Selectman David Singer. A source involved in the issue said the request includes 15,000 e-mails. The public records law allows responders to charge 50 cents per page for computer printouts.
Craver declined to comment Wednesday, June 9. The request could come up during the selectmen's next meeting Tuesday, June 15.
