(Holyoke, MA)  —  Mass Live and the Springfield Republican have filed a public records request to find out why a former city solicitor in Holyoke walked off with a big severance package. Heather Egan suddenly quit this month after a year on the job. She was given 45-grand on her way out the door, and Mayor Alex Morse won’t say why. City councilors have said they want answers. Under state law, documents including emails between city officials are public records.
