Robert Galbraith filed this request with the Office of the County Executive - Erie County of Erie County, NY.

It is a clone of this request.

Communications

From: Robert Galbraith

To Whom It May Concern:

Under the provisions of the New York Freedom of Information Law, Article 6 of the Public Officers Law, I hereby request a copy of all records or portions thereof related to, or referring to the following:

1. All meeting minutes, board resolutions, and other records relating or referring to meetings of the board of directors of Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus produced, sent, or received by County Executive Poloncarz from January 2012 through June 2017.

I understand that there is a fee of $0.25 per page for duplication of the records requested; however, this request is a matter of public concern and is not being made for commercial usage. As such, I request that any fees associated with providing requested records be waived. I also request that documents be provided in electronic format if at all possible. Doing so would eliminate the need to copy the materials and provides another basis for my requested fee waiver.

If, however, such a waiver is denied, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request.

As you know, the Freedom of Information Law requires that an agency respond to a request within five (5) business days of receipt of such request. Therefore, I would appreciate a response as soon as possible.

If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, I ask that you redact it for the time being and make the rest available as requested. In any event, please provide a notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter; I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Sincerely,

Robert Galbraith

From: FOIL, CountyExecutive

I am in receipt of your request for documents pursuant to New York's Freedom of Information law. We will search for the documents you requested and respond within 20 days.

We are continuing the search for responsive documents. There is no single central filing system for the County Executive's office and so the search is more complicated given the scope of your request.

So far we have located documents that can be found on the web site of the Buffalo Medical Campus https://bnmc.org/

Mr. Toth,

Thanks for getting in touch. Can you estimate when you will be able to provide responsive records? The BNMC website does not have any of the records I requested publicly available.

Best,

Robert Galbarith

From: FOIL, CountyExecutive

Your request specifically asked for "other records". So, for example, there are annual reports that are available on their web site, which we also have copies of. If your request to us is just for Board Meeting Minutes and Resolutions, that would significantly help our search because it is more specific.

Yes, I'm requesting all BNMC board meeting materials, not every BNMC-related record.

By "other records" I meant any board meeting materials sent to or received by the county executive beyond the minutes or board resolutions.

Thanks,

Robert Galbraith

From: FOIL, CountyExecutive

I have been given all of the "Board Packets" that the County executive office has. They are in a pdf format. I think I will need to send them one at a time. I can't guarantee that we have all of the board packets but I will give every one we have.
