Pursuant to Executive Order #26 (McGreevy 2002) Section 2 the following government records are exempt from Disclosure:

Consequently, your request is denied.

If your request for access to a government record has been denied or unfilled within the seven (7) business days required by law, you have a right to challenge the decision by the Upper Freehold Township to deny access. At your option, you may either institute a proceeding in the Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with the Government Records Council (“GRC”) by completing the Denial of Access Complaint Form.
