Dear Marlboro Township,

I recently submitted a few OPRA requests to Marlboro Township. Marlboro Township has not responded to those OPRA requests in the time frame required by law. Is there a reason why Marlboro Township has not responded to my requests in a timely manner? Is there a reason why Marlboro Township has not asked for additional time in order to fulfill my OPRA requests? If Marlboro Township is going to deny my requests, please state the reasons for the denial(s). We can then have this matter resolved in the Superior Court. Otherwise, please provide to me copies of those records that I have previously requested.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

James McMahon

Dear Suzanne Branagan,

It doesn't matter whether your office was open on Fridays and/or December 24, 2018. Those are legal business days. Marlboro Township and/or the employees of Marlboro Township do not get to determine what constitutes a business day within the meaning of the applicable state OPRA statute(s). If the Township of Marlboro only decides to have its employees work one day a week, that does not mean that someone making an OPRA request of Marlboro Township should have to wait 7 weeks before his or her OPRA request is acted upon.

Again, is there some reason why Marlboro Township choose not to obey the law with regard the various OPRA requests that I have submitted?

I acknowledge receipt of your message. I acknowledge that you are requesting a delay until January 17, 2019 in order to comply with the various OPRA requests that I have made.

Please forward a copy of this email to Ms. Manco, the Township Clerk.

Very truly yours,

James McMahon

Suzanne Branagan, Marlboro Township

Dear Suzanne Branagan,

Why was so much of the information contained in your response to my OPRA requests redacted? None of the information that appears on Marlboro Township's copy of dog license # 3036 (for the year 2018) should have been redacted. Please promptly provide me with a copy of the 2018 Marlboro Dog License #3036 that is not redacted and which contains all of the information that appears on Marlboro Township's copy of that particular dog license.

If you feel that there is some reason why some of the information that appears on dog license #3036 should have been redacted, please state those reasons, as this matter will almost certainly be resolved in the Superior Court.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

James McMahon

Suzanne Branagan, Marlboro Township
