Dear Scott I. Zapora,

I'm requesting that the documents be emailed to me, so there would be no charges.
*Access to electronic records and non-printed materials shall be provided free of charge, but the public agency may charge for the actual costs of any needed supplies such as computer discs.
*Records provided via e-mail and facsimile are free of charge. Custodians must charge the actual cost to provide access to all other electronic materials such as CD-ROMs, DVDs, videotapes, audiotapes, etc.

I'm not legally required to fill out your agency's form and that my email request
is legally valid. Please comply with my legally valid OPRA request within the legal time period
of 7 business days. Pursuant to Renna v. County of Union (App. Div. 2009),
OPRA requests should be on the agency’s official OPRA request form.
However, a written request that is not on the agency’s official OPRA
request form cannot be denied solely because the request is not on the
request form. Written requests which are not on the form must mention
OPRA. Therefore, if a requestor elects not to use an agency’s official
OPRA request form, he/she must submit an otherwise written request that
clearly identifies itself as an OPRA request.

Yours sincerely,

Cynthia Moore

Scott I. Zapora,
