To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Pennsylvania Right to Know Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on Sept. 28, 2018. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
In response to your request below, if you are seeking the Harrisburg County Clerk, you have misfiled your request. You have contacted the Dauphin County Commissioners Office/ Office of Open Records.
If you intended to contact Dauphin County regarding your request for "electric scooter" related information- your request is denied. Under the penalty of perjury, the County does not have possess policies as described. You may consider contacting the City of Harrisburg. This denial is permitted by Section 705, of the Act, which does not compel an Agency to produce a document that does not exist.
You have a right to appeal this denial of information in writing to the Office of Open Records, 333 Market Street, 16th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17126. If you choose to file an appeal you must do so within 15 business days of the mailing date of the agency's response. Section 1101. Otherwise, please be advised that this correspondence will serve to close this record with our office as permitted by law.
