2008 E-Government Award
to the Town of Carver
Carver was one of 90 towns to get an award from us for their
website. It has nothing to do with their compliance or
non-compliance with the open meetings law. Anyone who suggests the
award was for general "open government" is mistaken! We found that
virtually no towns in Mass posted important public records on their
website (selectboard minutes and agendas, budget, bylaws, town
meeting warrants and results) and conceived of the award as a
"carrot" to get more communities to do so. It has worked very well.
It's unfortunate that the award has been spun by some to be more
inclusive. Hope this helps. Best, Pam

This could is unbelievable that you would select Carver out of all
the 351 cities and towns in Ma to present them with an award! The
town of Carver has a record of being censured by the Plymouth County
district Attorney for violations of the state "Open Meeting Law"
They have had to revote on several items that the DA has found to be
" Under the table" deals! Shame on you for awarding them anything to
do with open Government!
