Please be advised that in response to the OPRA Request you submitted, the
request is voluminous and requires an extraordinary fee in order to
provide the responsive documents.  There are 200 pages of documents.  We
estimate approximately eight minutes per page for producing, reviewing and
redacting at a rate of $20.00 (or the lowest hourly wage of the staff
person in the responding department).  The approximate fee for the labor
would be $470.00 figuring on 23.5 hours (not including the 3 hours you are
permitted by ordinance). There will be no fee for the copying of documents
as you are permitted 200 pages by ordinance. This will bring the
approximate total cost to $470.  If you would like us to proceed with your
request, please submit payment of $350.00 in the form of a check made
payable to the Village of Ridgewood.  If you prefer, you may modify your
request.  Please advise how you would like us to proceed.

Jan,

Thank you for your response. Please clarify: " All written and electronic correspondence from Ridgewood Village Council: Susan Knudsen..." Should the documents include the entire Village Council or only Susan Knudsen with Julie Parker Communications?
