Good Morning Mr. Kratovil,
Attached is a document with most of the information you have requested
presently in a document that exists.
Of note:
1. Item #3 is denied. See Michelson v. Wyatt, 379 N.J. Super. 611, 620
(App. Div. 2005) (finding that the name of individuals receiving health
benefits was not subject to disclosure under OPRA). In addition, since
your request failed to provide information concerning your interest in
these records, the Board is unable to determine whether you have a
common-law right to these records. As a result, your request for these
records under the common law is denied.
2. Item # 5 is denied. Your request for a list of suspended employees is
denied. See Paff v.
Borough of Chatham, No. A-2350-10T1, 2011 WL 5105477, at *1 (App. Div.
Oct. 28, 2011) (finding that information concerning public employees'
suspensions are not available under OPRA); see also N.J.S.A. 47:1A- 10
(with limited exception, "the personnel or pension records of any
individual in the possession of a public agency ... shall not be
considered a government record and shall not be made available for public
access"). In addition, since your request failed to provide information
concerning your interest in these records, the Board is unable to
determine whether you have a common-law right to these records. As a
result, your request for these records under the common law is denied.
3. Some of the items you have listed do not exist in a form that is
reasonable to create or provide because of other private information or do
not exist or can be produced with our existing systems. The attached
spreadsheet gives much of the information you have requested in a nice
format to use.
With Regards,
