Dear Camden City,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I certify under penalty of NJSA 2C:28-3 that I have not been convicted of an indictable offense. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:

I am seeking the resolution approving the funds for the project listed as #2 of the 2017 annual action plan for CDBG funding of the "MLK House". I am also requesting the grant agreement between the city of Camden and Cooper's Ferry Partnership for the same grant listed as # 2 in the annual action plan. The grant is in the amount of $229,035. I am requesting the status of these funds and if any have been appropriated. I am also requesting the minutes of the planning meetings where the planning commission discussed grant #2 of the annual action plan.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Duff

Dear OPRARequest,

I am so sorry, it was from 2017, not 2016..... that is probably why it can't be found. Here is the link to the newspaper article: https://www.newspapers.com/image/?spot=1...

It was a Bureau of Grants Management meeting help on April 3rd 2017 at 3:30 in City Council Chambers. Please send me the minutes to that meeting as well as the agenda.

Yours sincerely,

Patrick Duff
