From: Bob Rusten

Good afternoon Mr. Purvis.

City Attorney Eileen Blackwood asked me to respond to your request.

As of now we have not yet purchased any cameras so there are currently no documents that meet your request.

When we do make such a purchase I will then be able to provide you with what you have requested.

Please e-mail me to acknowledge that you received this response.

In advance, thanks.

HI Carlton.

Thanks for the e-mail.

The cameras have not yet been purchased.

Hi Carlton.

Please see below as to the order form for the camera system.

We are expecting the cameras to be installed the week of August 18th.

Please note that on the order form the City was billed for tax. Due to our tax exempt status we have applied to Costco for a reimbursement of the tax, and we do expect that to happen.

We do not yet have the invoice for the cost of installation. As per your request, I will get that to you once we have received it.

I believe this meets your request for information.

Thanks.
