Mr. Smith, Attached you will find your FOIA request, our #16-037 and a notice of extension. I apologize, once again my office did not receive this back in December of 2015. The e-mail address that it was sent from was identified as a spam e-mail and ended up in my spam box of 2-2-16, (see attached screen shot) as it may have back in December, as well and had gone undetected. You should receive a response from the City of Berwyn on or before 2-17-16.
