The price of records requests varies. Fees are charged in accordance with Massachusetts Public Records Law (M. G.L. Chapter 66, Section 10). According to the 2010 US Census, the population of Greenfield is 17,456, and thereforethe Town of Greenfield falls under the fee guidelines for “municipalities with populations under 20,000.” Payment must be received before documents are released.
