Hi Kathryn,

I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in a manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check that the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.

When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was adhering to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want to make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want to come again only to have the same thing happen.

If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890 or my direct work line 224-993-9762.

Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

From: Buildings, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Have a great weekend,

Hello Kathryn,

Thank you for your message. If you need any other info from me, please let me know. Until then, have a happy St. Patrick's weekend, and I'll look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hello Kathryn,

I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review and estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested data from BSEED?

Best,
Katlyn

From: Buildings, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department

Good morning,

The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner address.

The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Good morning,

The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,

not
limited to– the address of the property being complained about, a
description of the issue, date of complaint, parcel ID, property
owner,

can accept this data in its database or in an exported spreadsheet
format, such as a CSV.
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.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?
Best,
Katlyn

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Have a great weekend,

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,

Great, I will follow up with you tomorrow. The redaction process on your end is just the removal of the `owner address ` column, correct?

Thank you!

On March 28, 2019:
Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

address
it, just to make sure it gets to you?

Good morning Kathryn,
No worries, thank you for your response. I would be happy to take the

Could you tell me the number of rows and the file type the data is in?

On March 28, 2019:
Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?
Best,
Katlyn

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Have a great weekend,

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Great. Will it be okay for me to come in at 4:30? I know it's a Friday, so if that's too late, I can ask to leave sooner.

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data

Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested

Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.

Hello Kathryn,
Thank you for your message. I can bring the payment by this afternoon–
how late will you be in? Alternatively, the attached document says to
contact Andrea Hackett to set up a time to drop off the payment and
pick
up the disc. Would you prefer I do that?
Thank you,

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Good morning Kathryn,
No worries, thank you for your response. I would be happy to take the

Could you tell me the number of rows and the file type the data is in?

On March 28, 2019:
Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Hello Kathryn,
Thank you for your message. Could you tell me the field names/column
headers that are in the non-redacted version, just so I can explain to
my editor what we will have available in the dataset? Then, I will ask
her how she would like to proceed.
Best,
Katlyn

On March 28, 2019:
Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.
Regards,
Kathryn Levasseur

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?
Best,
Katlyn

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Have a great weekend,

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Hello Kathryn,

Thank you for following up! If there is someone at BSEED you'd rather I direct my questions to about the data, just let me know. Thank you for all your help.

Best,
Katlyn

From: Buildings, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department

Good morning,

Good morning,

I just got a response from my department representative.

Below is a description of each tab:

Complaint_Inspections- is data pulled from the new system that the
BSEED started using in December. It contains inspections from December 5
until now.

Sheet 2- contains all inspections from 2010- 2018. This is data pulled
from the old system. It contains the same information as
Complaint_Inspections but it is just the old system.

Sheet 1- contains the same information as sheet 2 but it is just
formatted differently.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Have a great weekend,

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo

Kathryn,

Great, thank you. I will send any questions your way as I continue to go through the dataset.

From: Katlyn Alapati

Hello Kathryn,

Hope all is well downtown. As I've been going through the spreadsheet, I have been jotting down questions to have you relay to BSEED (of course, if you'd like me to direct them elsewhere, please let me know).

-Could I get a data dictionary for the meanings of the codes in the "Result" and "Current Status" columns?
-How are the owners entered? For instance, do the agents taking the calls look it up with the Assessor's office or a different agency? Are owners added after the fact, or are they entered right then and there?
-Is the "Last Inspection Date" tied to the case number or the property address?– as in, does that date refer to the last inspection for that particular case? Or does that refer to the last time BSEED inspected the property, regardless of whether it was a result of that complaint?
-What does it mean when there is no case description? Does that mean no one called to complain, or that it was a random inspection?
-What does "PRD" mean in the case description?

Please let me know if any of my questions are unclear! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Best,
Katlyn

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm following up on the following Michigan Freedom of Information Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on Feb. 5, 2019. You had previously indicated that it would be completed on Feb. 28, 2019. I wanted to check on the status of my request, and to see if there was a new estimated completion date. You had assigned it reference number #A19-001025.

Hello Kathryn,

Hope all is well downtown. As I've been going through the spreadsheet, I have been jotting down questions to have you relay to BSEED (of course, if you'd like me to direct them elsewhere, please let me know).

-Could I get a data dictionary for the meanings of the codes in the "Result" and "Current Status" columns?
-How are the owners entered? For instance, do the agents taking the calls look it up with the Assessor's office or a different agency? Are owners added after the fact, or are they entered right then and there?
-Is the "Last Inspection Date" tied to the case number or the property address?– as in, does that date refer to the last inspection for that particular case? Or does that refer to the last time BSEED inspected the property, regardless of whether it was a result of that complaint?
-What does it mean when there is no case description? Does that mean no one called to complain, or that it was a random inspection?
-What does "PRD" mean in the case description?

Please let me know if any of my questions are unclear! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Best,
Katlyn

Great, thank you. I will send any questions your way as I continue to go through the dataset.

Good morning,

Good morning,

I just got a response from my department representative.

Below is a description of each tab:

Complaint_Inspections- is data pulled from the new system that the
BSEED started using in December. It contains inspections from December 5
until now.

Sheet 2- contains all inspections from 2010- 2018. This is data pulled
from the old system. It contains the same information as
Complaint_Inspections but it is just the old system.

Sheet 1- contains the same information as sheet 2 but it is just
formatted differently.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

different time periods when the data was collected differently, but I
don't want to make an inaccurate assumption.

Good morning Kathryn,
No worries, thank you for your response. I would be happy to take the

Could you tell me the number of rows and the file type the data is in?

Hello Kathryn,
Thank you for your message. Could you tell me the field names/column
headers that are in the non-redacted version, just so I can explain to
my editor what we will have available in the dataset? Then, I will ask
her how she would like to proceed.

Good morning,
The search and retrieval by BSEED is complete.
In my preliminary review of the record, there is a mix of both
individual and commercial property owners, along with the owner
address.
The document does not allow me to sort by commercial or individual, so
I would have to review the entire document to remove personal
addresses
under Section 13(1)(a). However, we can expedite the process by just
deleting the entire owner street address. Please let me know which one
you would prefer.

Hello Kathryn,
I just wanted to check on the status of this FOIA request. I know the
original estimate for BSEED's portion of the retrieval was 1 week from
the time of payment, and then your office needed some time to review
and
estimate the time needed to redact. Have you received the requested
data
from BSEED?
Best,
Katlyn

Good afternoon,
My apologizes, I have never had this happen. The receipt is very
helpful. You do not need to bring another check. If we find it, we
will
let you know but if not, it's on us. BSEED is now in the process of
searching and retrieving the records.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Have a great weekend,

This is a follow up to request number A19-001025:
Hi Kathryn,
I just called and left you a voicemail. The check I delivered was
marked to your attention. I am attaching the receipt I received from
your office. As you can see, it has the FOIA request number and your
name in the memo line. I believe the woman at the front desk put it in
a
manila folder marked "FOIA." If you could please just double check
that
the payment is not in that folder or at the front desk.
When I was there, I asked the woman at the front desk if I was
adhering
to protocol for delivering payment, and she said I was. I don't want
to
make the trip again if it is not necessary, and I certainly don't want
to come again only to have the same thing happen.
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell at 720-519-8890
or
my direct work line 224-993-9762.
Respectfully,
Katlyn Alo
