Dear Ridgewood Village,

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:

Can you please provide electronic copies of emails:

1. Between councilwoman Pam/Pamela Perron and Beth/Elizabeth Gould Creller
2. Between councilwoman Pam/Pamela Perron and Christine Amundsen
3. Between councilwoman Pam/Pamela Perron and George Wolfson

Please use date range July 1 2020 to March 25, 2021 for this request.

Yours faithfully,

anonymous

Donna Jackson, Ridgewood Village

Please be advised the response to the OPRA Request you submitted has
produced a voluminous amount of documents and requires us to provide you
with an estimate for a Special Service Charge.

 

There are approximately 1921 pages of emails and we estimate we will
require 61 hours to reviewing/redacting those documents (you are permitted
3 hours at no charge by ordinance).  The fee for reviewing/redacting is
$25 per hour which is the lowest hourly wage of the person capable of
processing the request.  Therefore, the approximate reviewing/redacting
fee is $1,525.00.  The copying fee for 1721 pages (you are permitted 2
hours at no charge by ordinance) at $.05 per page equates to approximately
$86.05.  That will give us an approximate fee of $1,611.05 for processing
this voluminous response. 

 

Please advise how you wish to proceed with your request.  Thank you.
