We have created a request in your behalf on our OPRA system. Attached is a memo explaining the system. Your request is extensive and will require a few hours of review and redaction. We have downloaded 121 pages of messenger that have to be reviewed, redacted as needed and copied. The fee for that work to be done is $27.00/hour plus copies. This will take at least 2 hours to complete. If all 121 pages need to be copied, that would be approx. $6.00. Kindly let me know how to proceed. Thank you.

Dear Toms River Police Department,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Open Public Records Act reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Toms River Police Department's handling of my OPRA request 'Facebook Policies and Procedures'.

I object to the charge. I don’t think you can charge me for a couple hours work. Please produce them.

A full history of my OPRA request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://opramachine.com/request/facebook...

Yours faithfully,

Anonymous

Seaman, Sam, Toms River Police Department

The charge is only for the time to review, redact and copy the messenger pages (121). That is above and beyond our normal scope of work. The time I have spent and will continue to spend gathering the answers to your other 5 questions is not included. If the fee is not agreeable to you, then I respectfully request a time extension of two weeks from the original due date.
