Dear OPRA,
The response to the OPRA for Attendance Records for the Acting Municipal Clerk has been delayed. By law, Alpha Borough should have responded more promptly. An update as to why it's delayed would be much appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Lisa

OPRA, Alpha Borough

Ms. LaCaruba:
The deadline for this request falls within our OPRA operating schedule. You sent this on a Thursday, 7/12. Our OPRA operating schedule is Monday, Tuesday and Fridays from 2 - 4 p.m. So according to our schedule we opened it up on Friday. According to OPRA rules, day one starts the next OPRA operating day which would be Monday, 7/16. Counting from 7/16 as the first day, that brings the deadline for the request to be 7/30 based on our operating schedule. If we need additional time we will let you know by the deadline of 7/30.
Thank you and I hope this will clear up any questions you had.

Sincerely,

Donna L. Messina

The subject line of the request reads 2018-07-011 when the body of the
request reads 2018-07-010. The correct numbering is 2018-07-010. We
apologize for the error. This is an internal number system we use here and
doesn’t affect the content of the OPRA request.
