Dear Carteret Borough,
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.
I would like the following metadata from Robert Bergen email account, name of sender, name of receiver, date, and subject" from January 1 2013 through March 31, 2013
A review of this requested material will require more than a substantial
effort by the Borough Attorney to determine if this material will
implicate individual privacy concerns, public safety issues, attorney
client privilege and / or other exceptions under OPRA and, as such, his
initial cost estimate to undertake the review of the details of your
request is $2,350.00 based on an hourly rate of $110.00 an hour. It will
also take an extended period of time to accomplish. If you wish to post
an escrow for this amount, he can begin the necessary review as time
permits, and advise you if this amount will need to be increased, or can
be reduced. It is his initial belief that this amount will more likely
increase due to the need to review some of the emails themselves, conduct
any implicated research, and would most likely require an additional
substantial effort by the Borough’s IT personnel which would be in
addition to the attorney’s effort, for which there will be an additional
