I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at MuckRock.com.

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.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Adam Osmond

To Whom It May Concern:

The Department of Economic and Community Development ("DECD") has received your Freedom of Information ("FOI") request dated September 28, 2016 (DECD received on September 29, 2016), requesting the following information: “1. All emails between Joyce Heriot and Susan Shellard from when Ms. Shellard started at DECD to now; 2. All emails between Joyce Heriot and Kathy Woodward from 07/01/2015 to now; 3. All emails between Joyce Heriot and Cheryl Bocwinski from 07/01/2015 to now; and 4. All invoices from the Attorney General from 07/01/2010 to now for any employment cases.”

Note: As to number four (4) of you request “All invoices from the Attorney General from 07/01/2010 to now for any employment cases” DECD has no documents responsive to your request.
We will search our files for information responsive to your request and will determine whether the information is subject to disclosure under Connecticut's Freedom of Information Act. Please note that requests for access to and/or copies of documents are handled in the order that such requests were received. At this time, there are currently sixteen (16) outstanding requests for access to and/or copies of documents that were received prior to your request, many of which are voluminous. As you may be aware, each document must be reviewed for statutory exemptions to disclosure prior to being made available for public access. Additionally, the legal unit is not the custodian of the records you have requested. We must therefore rely on agency staff to provide responsive materials for our review and as such, our ability to provide the materials to you is dependent on our timely receipt of them from staff.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A DENIAL OF YOUR REQUEST FOR DOCUMENTS. I will contact you when the requested materials are ready for your review. Additionally, please be advised that there is a charge of $.25 per page for each page copied. Once the materials have been assembled, I will contact you with the estimated charges. Thank you for your patience.

In the interim, please contact me with any questions.

Very truly yours,
