Dear Alpha Borough,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:
In a PDF file I request:
1. Invoices and receipts for all supplies, equipment rentals, bands, food and any other money used for the community events planned and offered by Councilwoman Grossman.
2. Documents indicating the number of people who registered for each event and attended each event.
3. Documents indicating the number of events held and number of events canceled. Reasons why events were canceled.
4. All receipts for supplies, equipment rentals, bands, food and other items returned due to cancellation of the community events.

Yours faithfully,

Lisa

OPRA, Alpha Borough

Thank you for submitting your OPRA request. Requests will be processed
Monday, Tuesday, and Friday from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. as per N.J.S.A.
47:1A-5(a).

OPRA requests must be for a specific public document and should list a
specific date or dates. OPRA requests with terms "any and all", requests
for information, requests that require research into documents, or
requests that require the Clerk's office to create a document shall be
rejected.

 

OPRA, Alpha Borough

Ms. LaCaruba:

Currently, your request fails to:

1. Specify a date range for the records

2. For items number 2 and 3, your request fails to identify with reasonable clarity the specific government records sought , as is required by Bent v. Stafford Police Department, 381 N.J. Super. 30, 37 (App. Div. 2005).

At this time, we request clarification of your OPRA request. Please respond in writing and identify the specific government records sought so that we may process your request. Failure to provide written clarification of your request will result in the closure of this OPRA request.

Sincerely,

Donna L. Messina

You can do that by opening up each attachment, scrolling from top to
bottom of each attachment,  looking to see if there is something missing.
I can’t tell you what you think may be missing.

This is requesting further clarification regarding my OPRA for Alpha's
community events. When can I expect the receipts for all of the events?
Some invoices don't state what was purchased.
