Dear Town of West New York,

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. As a legal services attorney, the fees for this request may be waived.
Records requested:

Rent control documents for 6130 Bergenline Ave, specifically Apt 4.

Yours faithfully,
Lin Wang, Esq.
Northeast New Jersey Legal Services

ADELINNY PLAZA, Town of West New York

Dear Lin Wang:

The Clerk's office is in receipt of your request. A proper request under OPRA must identify with reasonable clarity those documents that are desired, and a party cannot satisfy the requirement by simply requesting all of an agency's documents. See Bent v. Stafford Police Department, 381 N.J. Super. 30, 37 (App. Div. 2005). Custodians are not required to conduct research or create records in response to an OPRA request.

Kindly provide clarification regarding the documents you seek from the Rent Control Board and our office will be able to process your request.

Very truly yours,

Adelinny Plaza, RMC
Deputy Town Clerk
Town of West New York
428 60th Street, Rm 2

Thank you for the response. I am requesting a document from the rent leveling board that shows the rent control records for the property located at 6130 Bergenline Ave. These are standard documents that I have received from other rent leveling boards, which shows the lawful rent for all apartments in one building. If the documents only show the lawful rent for one apartment at a time, rather than all apartments, I would like to specifically request the rent control documents for Apt 4. I would like to receive the last three years of rent control records for this building or this apartment, whichever is easier.

Yours sincerely,

Lin Wang

Town Clerk, Town of West New York
