State To Weigh In On Boston's E-Mail Recovery Efforts

This article is more than 10 years old.

Boston city officials are meeting with Secretary of State William Galvin on Tuesday to discuss their compliance with an order to turn over thousands of e-mails deleted by a top aide to Mayor Thomas Menino.

The city recovered thousands of e-mails from the mayor's chief of policy and planning, Michael Kineavy. However, officials said recovering e-mails to or from people outside City Hall could cost $250,000.

"We want to make sure all the records are preserved to the extent possible. So while they made progress, we certainly believe there's room for further progress," Galvin said.

Under state law, public employee e-mail must be preserved for two years.
