Good Day,

 

I have created an OPRA request for you in the Townships OPRA system.  Any
communications, files, etc. will be posted there.  Attached is a memo
explaining the system.  Before I begin this project I must advise you that
this is above the ordinary “report” request.  We did a similar project to
this earlier this year.  The messenger pages need to printed one by one
and then they need to be reviewed and redacted appropriately.  The last
project took us 13 hours to complete for approximately 16 months of
messenger.  This request is for 9 months which I would expect it to take
less time depending on the amount of content.  Our administrative fee of
$50.00/hr. will be assessed to complete this project.  I would estimate
4-6 hours to complete.  Kindly let me know how to proceed.
