Edgar Dillon,

I received your OPRA request for 4 Galewood Drive.

You have asked for “all permits open/closed.”

Unfortunately, as the Township deals with all kinds of permits, we need
clarification of what kinds of permits you are looking for:  ie.
construction, zoning, events, etc.

Once we receive your clarification I will process your request.

Dear Old Bridge Township,

I tried to clarify my request after the last response to what I was told I needed to specify but maybe you can help me better understand if I am still doing something wrong.

I am trying to request any open or closed building permits you have on file for the property located at 4 Galewood Dr.

Please feel free to call 732-395-6807 if needed. Thank you and hopefully this satisfies the request properly now.

Yours faithfully,

Edgar Dillon

Edgar,

 

The Township of Old Bridge received an Open Public Records Act (OPRA)
request on 8/11/2022.  As such, the seven (7) business day deadline to
respond to your request is 8/19/2022.

 

The request was for:  open or closed building permits.

 

Please see attached documents responsive to your request.

 

These are being transmitted to you via email per your request and pursuant
to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5.b., there is no cost associated with this response. 
PLEASE NOTE: Any file name of the attached permit(s) that begin with “C”
or “CA” are closed permits, any others are open or expired.  Per the
Construction Department, any work completed without permits, the property
owner will need to secure permits for said work prior to resale of the
home.  Absence of a permit for an oil tank does not mean there were never
tanks onsite.  Interested parties should do their due diligence.

 

If your request for access to a government record has been denied or
unfilled within the seven (7) business days required by law, you have a
right to challenge the decision by the Township of Old Bridge to deny
access. At your option, you may either institute a proceeding in the
Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with the Government
Records Council (GRC) by completing the Denial of Access Complaint Form. 
You may contact the GRC by toll-free telephone at 866-850-0511, by mail at
P.O. Box 819, Trenton, NJ, 08625, by e-mail at [1][email address], or
at their web site at [2]www.state.nj.us/grc. The GRC can also answer other
questions about the law.  All questions regarding complaints filed in
Superior Court should be directed to the Court Clerk in your County.
