Mr. Moore,

 

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 via e-mail dated September 21, 2018. Below is a request for
access and the Township’s response to the same.

 

“I seek a complete copy of the Rutgers study that is being used for the
Ordinance for 10/2/18.  I do not have to opra the ordinance, I called the
clerks office for the url and I was not greeted well. Answer the OPRA”

 

The document requested is not a study that was ordered by the Township, so
it was not made, maintained or kept on file in the course of Township
business.  The study was released to the public in July 2018 by Rutgers
and it is available online at

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 institute a
proceeding in the Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with
the Government Records Council (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
[2][email address], or on its website at [3]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.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Eleni Pettas
