Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Berkeley Township should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Berkeley Township,

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.
Records requested: I can state that at this time. I'm very disappointed with the response of this OPRA request. So, now I will clarify on what I'm asking for. I would like all invoices related to the Beachwood plaza. This includes all bills paid to contractors and any an all money from Construction fund. This OPRA includes all T&M Associates and there former associate Jim Ores.

Yours faithfully,

Dawn Parks

Karen Stallings, Berkeley Township

1. all bills paid JANUARY 2012 TO PRESENT - Attached is a copy of the payments made regarding the Beachwood Plaza site.

2. all invoices related to the Beachwood plaza JANUARY 2012 TO PRESENT - This portion of your request is voluminous, and the requested documents are located in storage. I would estimate approximately 300 file folders containing 5 to 50 separate pieces letter and legal paper. Complying with this request would require an extraordinary expenditure of time and resources and pursuant to NJSA 47:1A-5(c) I estimate it will take approximately 15 hours to retrieve, review, redact and reproduce each file and/or any single specific document located within same. As such below is an estimated cost to produce this request and the time frame to complete same is 21 business days from receipt of deposit.
A. cost of copies 1,500 to 10,000= $360( if redactions have to be made as per Paff v. Twp. of Teaneck (Bergen), GRC Complaint No. 2010-09 (Interim Order dated May 24, 2011)).
B. $14.44 per hr x 15 hrs = $216.60
A Deposit of $100.00 is required before the Township will begin the work.

Dear Karen Stallings,
