Records requested:

I would like to request all attendance records for Inspector John Aguiar from January 1, 2017 through December 21, 2018. It has come to my attention that Inspector Aguiar is a licensed realtor in the state of NJ and that he is engaged in his real estate business while being paid by the Township.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Donna,

I do not see which exemption would apply and would be happy to file a complaint with the State if needed. I do not believe that your response is complete.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Donna,

Personnel records are exempt except that: “an individuals payroll record” shall be a government record. In addition, data contained in information which disclose confirmity with specific experiential qualifications required for receipt of a public pension is also a government record.

Attendance records are part of the payroll record and would be required to qualify for any public pension claim. Again, I disagree with your refusal to produce these and will have no choice but to file a complaint with the State.

Happy New Year!

Yours sincerely,

Julian Leone

Dear Donna,

Please have the Township attorney review Weimer v. Township of Middletown and Jackson v. Jean University. Attendance records in both instances were deemed payroll records and were subject to OPRA.

Yours sincerely,

Julian

Donna Belton, Howell Township

I will have the Attorney look into this and we will get back to you by the end of next week.
