Communications

From: J Ader

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Kentucky Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All emails sent from or received by chris.seidt@louisvilleky.gov from December 1st, 2017 to September 1st, 2018. containing any of the following words:

"ShotSpotter"
"Shot Spotter"
"UAS"
"drone"
"drones"

For context in finding responsive documents, feel free to refer to this publicly released news article:

"...

The purpose of the FAA’s program is to learn about how cities might be able to use drones in ways they haven’t before. So Louisville’s program, being probably the first of its kind, could set an example for other cities to do similar things in the future.

“They’re looking not only to validate the safety … I think they’re trying to drive innovation in many use cases for drones and how those can impact the economy,” Seidt said.

Seidt expects the FAA to announce in May which pilot projects it will approve." [source: http://www.govtech.com/products/Louisville-Plans-to-Become-First-US-City-to-Use-Drones-to-Respond-to-Gunshots.html ]

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

J Ader
