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

Dear Chapman,

In response to your request, please see the attached letter.

We received your request on July 1st. Under FOIA, we have 5 business days to respond to your request. As July 4th was a holiday and our offices were closed, it does not count as a business day. Therefore our response was not due to you until today.

Thank you,

Michelle Levar

From: Matt Chapman

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.
