A law enforcement employee made a clerical error that caused the Social Security numbers of 78 ambulance workers and beneficiaries to be available on the town website for five days.  The information was accidentally attached to a resolution.  A very similar error had occurred before and this one was caused by a failure to click on the "no public access" check box in the computer system to privatize the information.
