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.
Why are you sending my OPRA request responses to my personal email rather than over this site? Why are you telling me you don't know what OPRA machine is? I've been receiving responses from Alpha Borough.
As per your need for clarification, I would like my OPRAmachine request regarding the key fobs to be sent to me in a PDF format over this site.
Thank you for submitting your OPRA request. Requests will be processed

Since I have never seen or heard of OPRA machine I asked for clarification to ensure that I was sending the responses to the appropriate individual. In the past you have always utilized your [email address]. Since this OPRA machine is your new email to which you would like your responses I will ensure that all requests go to that email address going forward. I was a bit confused when I received the first few under your new email address. Thank you for the clarification.
You also need to provide me with the form you would like the audio of for the July 11, 2017 council meeting.

You have not responded to my OPRA request promptly as required by law. Please provide me with an explanation as to why I haven't received it.
The deadline for this request falls within our OPRA operating schedule. You sent this on a Wednesday, 7/11. Our OPRA operating schedule is Monday, Tuesday and Fridays from 2 - 4 p.m. So according to our schedule we opened it up on Friday. According to OPRA rules, day one starts the next OPRA operating day which would be Monday, 7/16. Counting from 7/16 as the first day, that brings the deadline for the request to be 7/30 based on our operating schedule. If we need additional time we will let you know by the deadline of 7/30.
Thank you and I hope this will clear up any questions you had.
