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 custody of the Town of Stoughton.
Please note: All department managers are records access officers (RAOs) in Stoughton.
Public records requests may be mailed to their attention at:
Stoughton Town Hall 10 Pearl Street Stoughton, MA 02072
