Responding to Records Requests
Within five business days (excluding holidays) after receiving a request, we will:
· Provide the record(s); OR
· Acknowledge your request and give you a reasonable estimate of how long it will take to respond; OR
· Deny the request in writing, stating the reasons for the denial (this could also include a denial of part of your request and a granting of the remainder).
Once the records have been collected, we will notify you of any copying charges. Any records or portion of records that are exempt from disclosure will be withheld or redacted. We will specify the exemption that applies to any documents withheld or redactions made.
For security and verification purposes, please be aware that you may need to pick up the materials in person.
In addition to records being made available as copies, you may elect to inspect a record at no charge. The Records Request process (stated above) applies whether the records request is for copies or inspection.
