This email is to acknowledge receipt of your OPRA request dated and
received via email on 5/13/2021.  This response is being provided on the
sixth business day after the receipt of your request.

Please be advised, your request for “the entire building file" or "any
other records..." is not a proper request under the OPRA Statute. The Open
Public Records Act provides for citizen access to specifically identified
public records.  Searches, requests for information or requests that ask
questions are NOT valid OPRA requests. According to the Government Records
Council publication, “A Citizen’s Guide to the Open Public Records Act,”
OPRA requests must be specific:  Requestors must be as specific as
possible when requesting records. For example, requestors must identify
types of records, dates, parties to correspondence, subject matter, etc. 

I forwarded your request to our Building Department, Code Enforcement
Office and Planning & Zoning Department for clearly identified records
only.  Code Enforcement and Planning & Zoning responded that they were not
able to identify any records that would be responsive to your request. 
Documents provided by the Building Department are attached.  This is not
the result of a comprehensive search.  If you seek additional records,
please submit a new OPRA request and identify those records by name, date
and subject matter.  

This will close this OPRA Request.  Please feel free to contact me with
any questions.  Thank you.
