Massachusetts' Open Meeting Law Guidelines
Town Charter:  7-10-3 Rules and Journal

Each multiple member body shall determine its own rules and order of business unless otherwise provided by
the charter or by-law, and shall provide for keeping minutes of its proceedings. Such minutes shall be voted on
and approved within sixty (60) days following the date of such proceedings. These rules and minutes shall be
a public record kept available in a place convenient to the public at all reasonable times, and copies shall be
kept available in the town library.
Page 15 of Mass. Open Meeting Law Guidelines..

The Law is also silent on the issue of how long a governmental body may take to adopt and make available for public inspection its "official"
minutes. Nonetheless, by implication the Law requires that such minutes be made available to the public within a reasonable period of time
after the conclusion of any given meeting. What is reasonable will depend upon such factors as the length of the meeting in question, the
complexity of issues discussed at the meeting, the staffing and workload of the particular body responsible for preparing the final document,
and the like. Without establishing a hard and fast rule regarding the timeliness of the preparation of "official" minutes,
a time frame of two to
four weeks may be considered reasonable under most circumstances.
Release: Both the Open Meeting Law and the Public Records Law include provisions which pertain to the release of minutes of meetings
convened by governmental bodies. In general, the minutes of a meeting become public records from the moment they are created. This is true
regardless of the form in which they may first appear, i.e., stenographic notes, handwritten notes, or tape recordings.
The governmental body
may not require that it vote to adopt or approve or release open session minutes before they may be released to the public, even though the
minutes may be only in draft form at the time of the request.
The body or custodian of the records may, of course, label the notes or cassette
tape at the time of the release as being in draft, unofficial, or unapproved form, as may be appropriate
