J Gurney,

This office received your OPRA request on Tuesday, 6/21/2022. Your request, as written, would require extensive research and analysis to be performed by administrative employees, which is beyond the scope of OPRA and would disrupt the operations of the County of Ocean. As recognized by the Court, an OPRA request is not intended as a research tool, but rather as an avenue for citizens to obtain specific government records. MAG Entertainment, LLC v. Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, 534, 550 (2005) OPRA simply operates to make identifiable government records readily accessible for copying, inspection or examination. Also, an opinion issued by the Appellate Division, Elizabeth Mason v. City of Hoboken, Docket No. A-0508-06T5, held that “OPRA is not intended to be used as a fishing expedition or as a research tool to compile unknown documents.”

However, in the spirit of cooperation and in an effort to accommodate your request, kindly refer to the attached documents, as provided by the County Engineer, in response to your request.

Respectfully submitted,
Michelle I. Gunther
Clerk of the Board
Ocean County Board of Commissioners
101 Hooper Avenue, P.O. Box 2191
Toms River, New Jersey 08754-2191

OPRA: RIGHT OF APPEAL
If you wish to challenge a decision of the Custodian of Records denying access to government records, you may:
