Mr. Moore ,

 

This correspondence shall serve as Nutley Township (the “Township”)’s
response to your request for access to government records pursuant to the
Open Public Records Act, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1, et seq. (“OPRA”), which was
received via e-mail dated September 4, 2018.  Below is a list of each
request for access and the Township’s response to the same. 

 

 1. “Tom Evans stated on the record, he gave an order to conduct alleged
code violations.  I want a copy of the order”.  Although Commissioner
Evans gave a verbal order on the record at a Board of Commissioner’s
meeting, no responsive government record exists.
 2. “Tom Evans stated he had the services of a code enforcer from
Montclair.  I want the name of the investigator.  I want a true copy
of the investigators report”.  Your request seeks government records
which are exempt from disclosure pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-3(a) as
they pertain to an ongoing administrative investigation and disclosure
of such records would be inimical to the public interest.  See
Henderson v. Div. of Alcoholic Beverage Control, GRC No. 2010-139 (May
2011); O’Shea v. Twp. of West Milford, 410 N.J. Super. 371 (App. Div.
2009). 
 3. “Tom Evans stated there are 13 violations by a builder known as
Mecca.  I want a list of the violations.  I want a copy of all the
criminal citations for the 60 violations”.  In addition to being part
of the administrative investigation cited above, the government
records sought in this request constitute inter-agency advisory,
consultative and deliberative material which is exempt from
disclosure.  See Educ. Law Ctr. V. Dept. of Education, 198 N.J. 274
(2009). 

 

If your request for access to a government record has been denied or
unfilled, you have a right to challenge the decision by the Township of
Nutley 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.  You may contact the GRC by toll-free telephone at
866-850-0511, by mail at P.O. Box 819, Trenton, NJ, 08625, by e-mail at
[1][email address], or on its website at [2]www.state.nj.us/grc.  The
GRC can also answer other questions about the law.  All questions
regarding complaints filed in Superior Court should be directed to the
Court Clerk in your County.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Eleni Pettas

Dear Eleni Pettas,

Your documents did not open. Please resend as a pdf. I do not think this was intentional. The two documents did not open.
Yours sincerely,
