Good afternoon Mr. Duff,

 

The City is asking for a 7 day extension on the attached request. The City
is working diligently in gathering your information however your request
is rather exhaustive as not all grants are from CDBG funding. If you would
like to narrow your request, the City would be more than willing to
provide you the information. Thank you.

requested.  All of the information is on the City Council Agenda for the
April 11, 2017 meeting from pages 253 to 309” (Attached).

 

In regards to your May 7^th  submitted OPRA request, our Finance
Department has advised the following:

 

“The Fire Department applied for one outside revenue grant from 2017 to
current.  The application is one page. Included is the resolution awarding
the grant.

 

The Fire Department sent in submissions for the 2017 and 2018 Consolidated
Plan.  Attached are their request for funding.  These documents serve as
the “application.”  The “internal notice of funding availability” serves
