Your request requires additional time beyond the seven (7) business days

be advised by the custodian when the record can be made available.  If the
record is not made available by that time, access shall be deemed denied.”

 

Your request requires an extension of time until 8/19/19

 

If your request for access to a government record has been denied or
unfilled within the seven (7) business days required by law, you have the
right to challenge the decision by the Township of Franklin to deny
access.  At your option, you may either institute a proceeding in the
Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with the Government
Records Council (GRC) by completing the Denial of Access Complaint Form. 
You may contact the GRC by toll-free telephone at 866-850-0511, by mail at
P.O. Box 819, Trenton, NJ 08635, by email at [email address], or at
their web site at www.state.nj.us/grc.  The GRC can also answer other
questions about the law.  All questions regarding complaints filed in
Superior Court should be directed to the Court Clerk in your County.

 

Thank you,
