Jan,

The message below is my response to your request for the email server log. I have titled this OPRA Request 20.8.31 PHILIPS:

Please be advised that in response to the OPRA Request you submitted, the request is voluminous and requires an extraordinary fee in order to provide the responsive documents. There are 200 pages of documents. We estimate approximately eight minutes per page for producing, reviewing and redacting at a rate of $20.00 (or the lowest hourly wage of the staff person in the responding department). The approximate fee for the labor would be $470.00 figuring on 23.5 hours (not including the 3 hours you are permitted by ordinance). There will be no fee for the copying of documents as you are permitted 200 pages by ordinance. This will bring the approximate total cost to $470. If you would like us to proceed with your request, please submit payment of $350.00 in the form of a check made payable to the Village of Ridgewood. If you prefer, you may modify your request.

I do understand there is a separate request and the message above was sent inadvertently in an email for that request on September 10th by my co-worker. I apologize for that confusion. Please advise how you would like us to proceed.
