Hi Ms. Vail,

Apologies for this - I misread the lack of initial acknowledgment of this FOIA request as a lack of response after initial receipt. I will probably be forced to wait until they send receipt that they have received the initial request here?

Thanks,

No problem. Remember, if you do end up sending us a request for review, we need a COMPLETE copy of the FOIA request and public body response (one showing to whom it was sent, time it was sent, etc) as well as a signed Request for Review stating you would like to file a Request for Review and why.
Thanks,

Mary Jo
