The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Good afternoon Mr. Chapman.

I am in receipt of your FOIA request, however, I have a couple of questions...

1. what is your date range
2. what entity/specifics are you looking for

Let me know.

Thank you.

From: Matt Chapman

1. I am looking for a date range that goes back to 1990.
2. No entity/specifics.

I am open to narrowing, but I am not familiar enough with how your agency stores these records to make any narrowing determinations.

From: Chicago Department of Public Health

Good afternoon Mr. Chapman.

Please find attached our response to your request dated July 1, 2019.

Good morning Mr. Chapman.

I erroneously sent you the wrong letter. Attached is the corrected letter.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you.

The records that I am seeking are those agreements that were created to satisfy the statutory requirements from (5 ILCS 220/) Intergovernmental Cooperation Act and other acts which include references to intergovernmental agreements, their creation, or maintenance. Of note, (5 ILCS 220/3.2). I am not sure how much further narrowing you'll need, as these are standard agreements throughout Illinois that should be readily available to maintain statutory requirements. Please reach out to the respective director, as defined by the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act.

Furthermore, the records responsive to this request will be used to build a greater public understanding of Chicago's decisions, policies, procedures, rules, standards, and other aspects of government activity that affect the conduct of government and the lives of any or all of the people. As such, I humbly ask that the unduly burdensome exemption be waived, as the public interest greatly outweighs the burden on the public body. Consider that the burden is placed on the public body to show that the burden on the public body is outweighted by the public's interest.

If absolutely necessary, I will accept all IGs from 2000 to the present date.

From: Chicago Department of Public Health
