Satish Agarwal,

 

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 by the Township on April 28, 2020 during regular business hours.
Below is a list of each request for access and the Township’s response to
the same:

 

“Name(s), mailing address(es), phone number(s), email address(s) and any
other contact information of the owners of 640 Franklin Avenue
Condominiums." Please see attached list of owners’ names and mailing
addresses. The Township does not have emails and telephone numbers for
property owners in its system.

 

To the extent that you have also requested access to the above government
records under the common law, your stated interest in obtaining the
records must be balanced against the Township of Nutley’s interest in
nondisclosure.  See Loigman v. Kimmelman, 102 N.J. 98 (1986).  The
foregoing response to your request for access to government records
incorporates the aforementioned balancing test.  Please note that "a
party's status as a litigant does not enlarge its access to government
records under OPRA”.  MAG Entm't, LLC v. Div. of Alcoholic Beverage
Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 545-46 (App. Div. 2005).  The Township of
Nutley reserves the right to raise any other grounds for denial not raised
in this response.  Failure of the Township of Nutley to assert an
exemption or privilege does not act as a waiver of any grounds for
denial.  Furthermore, a reviewing Court or the Government Records Council
("GRC") may deem a denial of access to be authorized on grounds other that
those advanced by a custodian.  See Paffv. Twp. of Plainsboro,
A-2122-05T2, 2007 WL 957289, at *2 (App. Div., Apr. 2, 2007), affirming,
Paff v. Township of Plainsboro, GRC Complaint No. 2005-29 (March 2006). 
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 initiate a
proceeding in the Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with
the 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.

 

Sincerely,

Dear Ceci Tramontana,
The information I requested was not for the individual unit owners (condominium units). I need the information related to the owners of the property at 640 Franklin Avenue. Please contact me for any questions.

Yours sincerely,

Satish Agarwal

Ceci Tramontana, Nutley Township

I will be out of the office beginning Friday, August 21 and will return on
Monday, August 31, 2020. For assistance, please contact Eleni Pettas at
973-284-4955 or [Nutley Township request email] .

Thank you.

Mr. Agarwal,

I have inquired with the Tax Assessor and he has confirmed that there is not an individual owner of the development. In condominium ownership, each unit is owned by an individual party who then owns a percentage of the common elements. The list provided in April reflected the ownership of the property.

If you are looking for the condo association then it is "Franklin Avenue Condominiums." We have their mailing address as 640 Franklin Avenue, Nutley, NJ 07110.

Thank you,
