Re:

Public Records Act Request Received February 21, 2018 - Production

Dear Ms. Lipton:

This correspondence is being sent in response to your request under the California Public Records Act, Government Code section 6250, et seq. ("PRA"), deemed received on February 21, 2018 (attached for your convenience).

On March 16, 2018, the City informed you that it is in possession of records potentially responsive to your request. The City is currently reviewing those records and intends to make any non-exempt public records responsive to your request available to you on a rolling production basis.

The City has now determined that your request seeks public records exempt from disclosure under the attorney-client privilege, attorney work-product doctrine, and/or protected by the deliberative process privilege, records that are exempt because they are drafts, records related to pending investigations, or pending litigation. (Gov. Code, §§ 6254, subd. (a), (b), (f), (k), 6255; City of Irvine Personal Information Privacy Act, approved by the voters November 4, 2008; City of San Jose v. Superior Court (1999) 74 Cal.App.4th 1008; County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors v. Superior Court (2017) 12 Cal.App.5th 1264.)

Subject to and without waiving any applicable exemptions, all disclosable records that the City deems to fall within the scope of your request are now available at the following link: https://rutantucker.thruinc.net/Desktop/Distro/Open/041SNSQPPBV. Please note that this link will expire on Sunday, July 1, 2018. For responsive records in which only portions of the records are protected by an applicable privilege or exemption, those redacted records or portions thereof, if any, are provided as well. This completes the City's response to your PRA request pursuant to Government Code section 6253.

Should you have any questions about the above, please do not hesitate to contact me.
