Dear Bill Bray,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I was unable to find the minutes I requested on your website. That's why I made the OPRA request.

Yours sincerely,

Kareema Davidson

Dear Kareema Davidson,

The Borough of South River received your Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request on March 4, 2019. The official Records Custodian, William Bray, received your OPRA request on March 4, 2019. As such, the seven (7) business day deadline to respond to your request is March 13, 2019. This response to your request is being provided to you on the 7th business day after the custodian’s receipt of said request.

You requested:
“1.) Minutes of Jan. 26, 2015 Regular Council Meeting
2.) Minutes of Jan. 26, 2015 Business Council Meeting
3.) Minutes of March 7, 2015 Workshop Council Meeting
4.) Minutes of February 27, 2013 Workshop Council Meeting

9.) Minutes of March 12, 2016 Workshop Council Meeting
10.) Minutes of March 4, 2017 Workshop Council Meeting"

For items 1 &2, there are no meeting minutes because the meeting was cancelled due to a snowstorm. We are providing a copy of a legal ad that ran in the Home News Tribune indicates such.
For items 3, 9 and 10, your request is denied because no such records exist. The meeting minutes we not created in either a draft or approve form. When such records exist, they will be posted to our website and you will have access to them there. OPRA requests are only valid for records that exist at the time of the request and may not be used to prospectively request records.

For items 4,5,6,7 and 8, the records are attached here.

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 a right to challenge the decision by the Borough of South River 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, 08625, by e-mail 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.

Sincerely,

Bill Bray, RMC
