Re: Freedom of Information Act Request
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act, The Sunshine Act 5 U.S.C. § 552b, and Vermont Public Records 1 V.S.A. § 317, I request that a photocopy of the following documents be provided to me:
I am a private citizen seeking information concerning your public official surety bond, or the Errors & Omissions (E&O), and or the Duty of Care policy that you are required by the state of Vermont to obtain before swearing the oath of office.
Vermont 16 V.S.A. § 706q.
(a) The powers, duties, and liabilities of the treasurer, auditor, board of directors, and clerk shall be like those of a treasurer, auditor, board of school directors, and clerk of a town school district.
(a) The powers, duties, and liabilities of the treasurer, board of directors, and clerk shall be like those of a treasurer, board of school directors, and clerk of a town school district.
(b) Before entering upon the duties of their office, the board of school directors shall give a blanket bond and the treasurer shall give a personal bond to the district, conditioned upon the faithful performance of their duties. The treasurer’s bond shall be in such sum as the board of school directors shall require. The board of school directors’ bond shall be in such sum as shall be required by the commissioner of education. When a board of school directors or treasurer for 10 days neglects to give a bond as required, the office shall become vacant.
Public Official Surety Bond requests fall under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, The Sunshine Act 5 U.S.C. § 552b, Vermont Public Records 1 V.S.A. § 317 by law you are obligated to supply me with this information.
It is public knowledge in the State of Vermont that all school boards in the state and the superintendents are required to be bonded, carry a surety liability insurance policy, an Errors & Omissions, or a Duty of Care policy.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
