Attention Borough of Etna Freedom of Information Officer:

There is no fee requested for this Freedom of Information request for the Borough of Etna payroll from 2012 to date.

Please respect the integrity of each FOIA request as an isolated matter, to be treated with individual responses. Legally, each FOIA request, is a request unto itself and should be responded to as such and should be kept separate. They are not a 'Shake'nBake' and should not be treated as such.

Mary Ellen Ramage, the Borough Manager, the Freedom of Information Officer, is on some 'heady-trip' and under some delusion, pretending that she is not an employee of the Borough of Etna taxpayers, which includes me.

As an added note, all fees have been paid, to date, that were due, but that has nothing to do with this particular Freedom of Information request. If the Freedom of Information Officer is referring to the $401.50 extortion fee requested for the FOIA request as below –- that has been marked ‘COMPLETED’. Please refer to that request here https://www.muckrock.com/foi/etna-27363/borough-of-etna-codes-and-ordinances-laws-and-rules-and-enforcement-procedures-including-associated-fines-as-allowable-by-law-30286/ or for your convenience, my last correspondence regarding that FOIA request is as below:

Subject: RE: Right to Know Request: Borough of Etna Codes and Ordinances, Laws and Rules and Enforcement Procedures, including associated fines as allowable by law.

Attention Borough of Etna Freedom of Information Officer:

I am going to mark this Freedom of Information request as 'COMPLETED' because even though the Freedom of Information Officer has been informed that I will have a scanning crew go to the Etna borough building and scan the Codes and Ordinances, Laws and Rules and Enforcement Procedures, including associated fines as allowable by law, in their entirety and put them on-line, for all to review and for all to view; Mary Ellen Ramage is holding the other Freedom of Information requests' responses 'hostage' for this big 'pay-day' of $401.50, a reward, that I am sure she has charged multiple times before, for these documents.

Each Freedom of Information request is a legal document and a request unto its own and should be treated as such and responded to as such. Mary Ellen Ramage is just playing a ‘delaying game’.

Mary Ellen Ramage, the borough manager, has been found out to be charging excessive and illegal fines, that are not within the Borough of Etna's Authority. Publishing the Borough of Etna Codes and Ordinances and the Authority under which they operate, would reveal that.

I think a thorough audit is in order, as I do not believe, I am the only one that is feeling the financial sting of repeated $1000 citation fines.
