The extraordinary volume of documents (estimated to be over 1000s pages and estimated unknown staff hours and multiple staff members to fill the request  is too burdensome on City resources to produce the request as drafted. Please contact the Clerk's Office at 847-448-8189 to discuss narrowing the scope of the request.

Please consider providing a timeline for the request.
