Dear Ridgewood Village,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.

Rurik,

 

The OPRA Request you submitted has a search word and a period of time that
is overly broad and has produced a response that is voluminous
(approximately 675 pages).  Would you like to modify your request or have
me provide an approximate cost to provide the documents requested? Please
advise how you would like to proceed.  Thank you.

Dear Donna Jackson,

How about restricting request to communications to/from Heather Mailander and Susan Knudsen for the same period?

Thanks for your patience and help,

Yours sincerely,

Dear Donna Jackson,

I will not accept this. You have had ample time.

I need the material ny the 22nd in order to prepare for the VC meeting of the 24th.

I frankly smell a rat here.

Sorry to say this.

Rurik

Yours sincerely,

Rurik,

My search did turn out to be a large file and it is my responsibility to be certain the documents are proper for release and require review and redacting. They also require attorney review when my work is completed as the communications include Village Council members. The Village Clerk's Office has an excess of requests to prepare at this time and that is the reason for requesting the extension. We have been responsive in the past and will attempt to meet your request but cannot be certain we will do so.
