OPRA request

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Howell Township should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Howell Township,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:

All records, CAD entries for all incidents involving Adam Winits, Kathleen Winits for the past 3 years.

Yours faithfully,


Donna Belton, Howell Township

Good Morning,

In reference to your OPRA please note that the OPRA in its current state
cannot be fulfilled as it is overly broad.  Verbiage such as, “…all
records, CAD entries for all incidents…” create opportunities for
subjective interpretation.  You will need to be more specific in what you
are seeking and if it falls within the provisions of OPRA to be released
we will address it.  We will wait to hear from you before proceeding.


Thank you.
