Dear Nutley 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:

"OPRA's clear purpose . . . is 'to maximize public knowledge about public affairs in order to ensure an informed citizenry and to minimize the evils inherent in a secluded process.'" Educ. Law Ctr. v. N.J. Dep't of Educ., 198 N.J. 274, 284 (2009) (quoting Mason v. City of Hoboken, 196 N.J. 51, 64 (2008)).

This OPRA request is directed to, Ceci Tramontana, RMC, Nutley Deputy Municipal Clerk. There is a no contact ORDER between Elli Pettas and Rory Moore. Complaints have been filed. I still have my rights to file OPRA request.

OPRA machine has determined Pettas has full control over the receiver email address. Pettas has to change the receive email. I have no dominion, control, or ability to change the recipients email address. I have filed criminal complaint against Pettas for using government resources to harass me.

Hence, Rory Moore request be answered in strict compliance with New Jersey State law of seven days and in an excel file or Microsoft excel document AT ALL TIMES.

This request is to cease the OPRA request that are intentionally answered with PDF files that cannot be opened up and unanswered OPRA request sent with the intent to aggravate Rory Moore.

Rory Moore had to file a criminal complaint as Eleni Pettas the Nutley Municipal Clerk intentionally files OPRA request with intent to exacerbate Rory Moore’s heart condition.

I seek the original request, the approval and the reason for the following bill request,
20-00267, 20-00316, 20-00685, 20-03559, 00311, 20-00645, 20-003111, 20-00002847, 19-03438.

I seek the original contract, the approval and the actual contract for the following.
The 7-day rule will be enforced. I required the response to be in an excel format.

Yours faithfully, Rory

Rory Moore

Yours faithfully,

Rory Moore

Mr. Moore,

 

This correspondence shall serve as Nutley Township (the “Township”)’s
response to your request for access to government records pursuant to the
Open Public Records Act, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1, et seq. (“OPRA”), which was
received by the Township on February 8, 2021 during regular office hours.
Below is a list of each request for access and the Township’s response to
the same:

 

"I seek the original request, the approval and the reason for the
following bill request, 20-00267, 20-00316, 20-00685, 20-03559, 00311, 
20-00645, 20-003111, 20-00002847, 19-03438." Please see attached records.
Please note that PO # 20-00002847 and PO # 20-003111 are not valid
purchase order numbers. Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1, redactions have
been made in order to protect from disclosure the following exempt
information: records or information within the attorney-client privilege,
and personal identifying information.

 

To the extent that you have also requested access to the above government
records under the common law, your stated interest in obtaining the
records must be balanced against the Township of Nutley’s interest in
nondisclosure.  See Loigman v. Kimmelman, 102 N.J. 98 (1986).  The
foregoing response to your request for access to government records
incorporates the aforementioned balancing test.  Please note that "a
party's status as a litigant does not enlarge its access to government
records under OPRA”.  MAG Entm't, LLC v. Div. of Alcoholic Beverage
Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 545-46 (App. Div. 2005).  The Township of
Nutley reserves the right to raise any other grounds for denial not raised
in this response.  Failure of the Township of Nutley to assert an
exemption or privilege does not act as a waiver of any grounds for
denial.  Furthermore, a reviewing Court or the Government Records Council
("GRC") may deem a denial of access to be authorized on grounds other that
those advanced by a custodian.  See Paffv. Twp. of Plainsboro,
A-2122-05T2, 2007 WL 957289, at *2 (App. Div., Apr. 2, 2007), affirming,
Paff v. Township of Plainsboro, GRC Complaint No. 2005-29 (March 2006). 
If your request for access to a government record has been denied or
unfilled, you have a right to challenge the decision by the Township of
Nutley to deny access.  At your option, you may either initiate a
proceeding in the Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with
the 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, 08625, by e-mail at [1][email address], or on
its website at [2]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.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ceci Tramontana, RMC
