Good morning Mr. Musgrave.

The City has received today the records request you emailed on April 10, 2014, and will produce any responsive, non-privileged records to your request to the extent that they exist. Due to the nature of the request and the time needed to research and compile same, we will contact you when it is determined that there are responsive, non-privileged records and when they will be available for your viewing and/or copying. Please note that the City will charge $0.25 per page for copies of the records you requested, as there is no policy in place for the waiver of such fees. Staff will produce all responsive electronic documents at no charge, as you requested. However, you will need to provide the appropriate digital media (such as a blank cd) so that the documents can be stored onto it.

In the meantime, should you have any questions or require anything further, please feel free to call me at 626-430-2201.

Armando Hegdahl 04/24/2014

Hello Mr. Musgrave. As you know, I sent you a response to your email on April 14 (copy below) indicating that the responsive electronic documents you requested would be provided to you at no charge, provided you supply the digital media necessary to store said documents so that these can be provided to you. However, to this date, I have not received any such media, nor a response from you. Please advise whether you would still like to proceed with this request. If so, you are reminded to kindly provide me with the necessary digital media to store the electronic documents for you. Please know that there are too many documents to send over email or by fax. I can be reached at 626-430-2201 or by email should you have any questions or concerns. Thank you.

Hello,

Apologies for missing your earlier email about sending a disc.

Would it be possible to send via multiple emails or upload to a fileshare system? I think that would be faster and more efficient than shipping a disc from Boston to California. If not, I can arrange for a disc to be sent or dropped off.

Thanks for your help!

Armando Hegdahl 04/24/2014

Thank you for your email. However, as I mentioned in my email a little while ago, there are too many documents to send over email. If you would like to use a fileshare system, please send me instructions and log in information. Thank you.

Shawn Musgrave 04/26/2014

Hello,

I've just consulted with my IT team, and they were wondering whether you'd be able to send a Dropbox link? That would be ideal. If not, I can arrange for an FTP transfer.

Let me know which works best!

-Shawn

Armando Hegdahl 04/26/2014

I am currently out of the office and will return on May 5, 2014. If you require immediate assistance, please contact the City Hall Receptionist at 626-430-2200. Thank you.

Shawn Musgrave 05/01/2014

Checking on this -- any update on whether this filesharing option will work?

Thanks!

-Shawn

Armando Hegdahl 05/05/2014

Hello Shawn. Please arrange for the FTP transfer and provide me instructions on how to use this method to provide you the documents you requested. Thank you.

Shawn Musgrave 05/05/2014

Hello,

Here is our FTP information:

[redacted]

Let me know if you need more detailed instruction.

Thank you!

Armando Hegdahl 05/05/2014

Thanks Shawn, but you only seem to have sent me login information. I need detailed instructions as to how to use an ftp, as I have never used this method before. Thanks.

Shawn Musgrave 05/05/2014

Hello,

Detailed instructions can be found at this FTP client site, if you do not have another FTP client: http://www.siteground.com/tutorials/ftp/cuteftp.htm

If you have no other FTP client, I will arrange for a disc to be sent to you. It may be easier for me to consult with your IT assistant or similar staffer, so that I don't have to mail a disc from Boston.

Best,
Shawn

Shawn Musgrave 05/07/2014

Hello,

Following up on this to confirm whether you need anything additional from me.

Thanks for your help!

Armando Hegdahl 05/07/2014

I sent a request for advice to our IT staff since I've never sent documents using an ftp client. I'll get back to you as soon as I receive their response. Thanks.

Armando Hegdahl 05/15/2014

Good morning Shawn. I just wanted to give you an update on your request for records. I've sent a request to our IT worker for assistance in using the FTP you sent me a few days ago. However, he is tied up in another project for our Library. As such, he has not had a chance to help me yet. I don't want to keep delaying this request, so would it be ok for me to just burn the documents on a cd and mail them to you?

Shawn Musgrave 05/15/2014
