Hello,

I am writing to confirm that I received your message and the 12 attachments. Thank you very much for your help with this request. I see from the letter that there are likely more documents responsive to this request forthcoming. For the sake of making it easier on your department, I wanted to clarify that I am looking for contracts between the town of Greenwich and Eversource Energy regarding the sale of the tax credit. Eversource bought the tax credit from the town.

Thanks again,
Todd

Good morning, Mr. Feathers,

I wanted to get back to you to let you know I am checking with a few additional individuals with the Town to be sure we have no more documentation responsive to your FOI Request regarding the 2015 Connecticut Historic Preservation Tax Credit, specifically any contracts associated with the same. I will follow up with the few individuals who may have something, if it exists, and get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you for your patience. Have a wonderful day.
