PR 20-10 Farinelli v. City of Pawtucket Violation found

The City requested that we reconsider our October 28, 2019 finding in Farinelli v. City of Pawtucket, PR 19-17, in which we determined that the City violated the APRA by withholding the "city or town of residence" of City police officers. See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-2(4)(A)(b). We reaffirm our prior determination that the plain language of the APRA requires disclosure of the city or town of residence of all public employees, including police officers. Accordingly, the City is required to disclose this information. VIOLATION FOUND.
