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
