“murky” claiming the organization has
to do with the money and suggested I contactthe Police Department and have the Chief explain.Well, today I finally got around to it:From: craig shibley [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]Sent: Monday,

Chief:Please forward these records electronically as they already exist in this format. Additionally, I have a few questions with respect to Box 201 at 40 West Street and the Barre Emergency& Rescue Squad Inc./ Barre EMS/ Barre Ambulance Service. Though the following isn't a formal recordsrequest, I would hope in the spirit of transparency and openness you can provide some answers given the fact various public records confirm the Barre Police Department's direct ties to the "Service" - bothoperationally and financially.
. Who in the BPD has access to Box 201?;
. How can the BPD claim the ambulance receipts after being forwarded from a third party collectionagency?;
. Who is - and has been in the past - the BPD's bookkeeper of these receipts?
Who are these receivables made out to - i.e. Chief of Police , aka Ambulance Department Head, Town of Barre ... etc?
. What formal, legal agreement exists (or did exist) allowing the private, nonprofit BEARS not to claimits service program revenue but rather the BPD?I thank you for your anticipated cooperation.Very truly yours,Craig Shibley
I even sent a follow-up to the Office of Emergency Medical Services asking someone at the MADepartment of Health to explain what is the Barre Ambulance Service, Wonderland’s currentEMS service provider:
