Dear Talia Pena-Marin,

Good morning and thank you for sending me the list of open permits after we spoke earlier on the telephone. I requested copies of the applications, permits issued, license and copies of all correspondence within the folder/permit, but I totally understand making/scanning copies of the entire contents for all the permits on the list you sent me would be overwhelming. Please do not treat this as a new request since I did not receive all the documents I requested and instead am willing to compromise on the amount of records I am willing to accept.

Therefore, I would like to requested the following for only 5 of the permits on the list of over 100 you sent me. For the following permits (20220367, 20211215, 20200849, 20190452 and 20180792)

- Construction Permit Application
- Certification in Lieu of oath
- Construction Permit
- Fire Protection Subcode application and Permit (if one was applied for and issued)
- Copies of professional licenses issued by NJ DEP summitted to your agency submitted by the applicant
- Any communication/paperwork submitted by contractor or subcontractor requesting inspections and submitting proof of proper disposal of removed tank,
- any and all other records available attached to said permit

I apologize if this caused any extra work on your part.

Yours sincerely,

Anthony J

Dear Talia Pena-Marin,

Good afternoon,

I am in receipt of your response and I would clarifications to some of the below listed issues I came across while reviewing them

- Page 7 : Construction Permit Application for 128 Elmwood Terrace, the right side of the page is cut off therefore not showing the document in its entirety;

- Page 8 Certification in Lieu of Oath for 128 Elmwood terrace, the bottom is cut off therefore not showing names, signatures and dates

- Page 13: Construction Permit Application for 239-241 West Linden Ave , the right side of the page is cut off therefore not showing the document in its entirety;

- Page 14 Certification in Lieu of Oath for 239-241 West linden Ave, the bottom is cut off therefore not showing names, signatures and dates

- In reference to Permit 20200849 for 302 Hussat St: 1) Pages 20, 21, 22, and 23 are all duplicates of each other. 2) the Construction permit application is missing 3) the Certification in Lieu of oath is missing 4) Fire Protection Subcode Application is missing 5) None of the permits are signed by a construction official unlike the first two.

- In reference to Permit 20211215 for 6 Furber Ave: 1) Pages 26, 27, 28 and 29 are all duplicates of each other. 2) the Construction permit application is missing 3) the Certification in Lieu of oath is missing 4) Fire Protection Subcode Application is missing 5) None of the permits are signed by a construction official unlike the first two.

- In reference to Permit 20220367 for 123 Robinwood Terrace: 1) Pages 32, 33, 34 and 35 are all duplicates of each other. 2) the Construction permit application is missing 3) the Certification in Lieu of oath is missing 4) Fire Protection Subcode Application is missing 5) None of the permits are signed by a construction official unlike the first two.

- All the 5 permits are missing proof submitted by the contractor of proper disposal of the underground tank. Can you please confirm none of the permits have any attached to them, which is required as per NJ DEP.

Can you please correct the copies that were cut off? Also, can I please get copies of the missing construction applications and other documents that are required to be filed by the applicant in order to be issued construction permits? In addition, can I also obtain the version of construction permits signed by a Linden Construction Official and not a blank copy?

I would like to remind you that I submitted my original request on 4/13/22 and it is being delayed due to being sent missing, ineligible or records I did not request.

Yours sincerely,

Anthony J

from the construction code. I am waiting for their response so I can
respond to you as soons as possible.  I will be reaching out to Mark
Ritacco again in the matter. Thank you for your understanding.
