Please be advised that your OPRA request is voluminous.  We have completed
a preliminary search of our email server to meet the first parameter of
your OPRA request.  By using the names listed and ONLY the term
“Emergency” for the time May 1, 2020 through March 2, 2021, we located 
5,871 emails.  Each email equates to an estimated 3 pages so that means it
would be approximately 17,613 pages which will require approximately 293
hours to redact (at 3 minutes per page).  You are permitted 3 hours
without charge by ordinance.  The cost of $25 (which is the lowest hourly
wage paid to the person capable of completing the request in the
responsive department) would total $7,250 for redacting.  In addition,
there is a charge of 5 cents per page printed.  We would charge to print
17,413 pages (as you are permitted 200 pages without charge) and that
approximate fee would be $870.65.  Therefore, your total approximate fee
for searching the individuals emails requested with just the term
“Emergency” would cost $8,195.65.  Similarly, the term “EMS” netted 1058
emails and “Fire” 4,503 emails came up.

 

Please advise how you would like to proceed

 

Thank you.
