From: Nick Ingalls

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Michigan's Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

A Shapefile or CSV containing at minimum the Address Points (house # and street name) and their corresponding Latitude/Longitude. If additional data such as the Unit Number, City, Zipcode, Parcel Id exists they should be included as well.

If this cannot be accessed, the parcel file including situs address would suffice.

Other names for this include: E911 Address Database, Civic Address File, Parcel Dataset, Land Ownership Dataset, Tax Parcels, Address Points.

I also intent to publish the data via the OpenAddresses Publication platform and would request a waiver of fees for the request.

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. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Nick Ingalls

We have in excess of 33,000 parcels. We can send by CDROM and the charge is 3 cents per parcel so you're looking at a fee of approximately $1,000.

Hello,

Since I am requesting the data under the Michigan FOIA act per MCL Section 15.234 Sec 4. The fee should be based on the actual cost to duplicate the record and not on a per parcel basis.
Other counties have charged me typically between $25 and $50 for an hour or two of the lowest paid employees time.

Would it also be possible to email a zip file containing the shapefile? This would save and shipping and media costs.

Cheers,
Nick
