No Responsive Documents


From: Paxtyn Merten

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

· A copy of the bid submitted in response to Amazon's request for proposals for the site of its second headquarters, any contracts with third-party providers for services rendered regarding the Amazon HQ2 bid, and any marketing budgets regarding Amazon-related expenditures from September 1, 2017 to the date this request is received.

Now that Amazon has announced the locations of its second headquarters, there is no ongoing competition barring the proposal's release.

Please provide records on a rolling basis, and reach me at 617-299-1832 if you have any questions.

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.

Hi there

Your first City of New Orleans record request (request number #18-6871) has been submitted.
It is currently unpublished and is not available for the general public to view.

Thank you, our office has received your Public Records Law request.  Your request has been forwarded to the City department or office which is the custodian of the records you requested. The custodian will determine whether responsive records exist, and if so, compile the records for your review.

Please refer to the due date located on the individual "Request #" page for an estimate of when your records, if any, will be available.  This estimated due date may be adjusted depending on the nature of your request.

Note also that records may be in active use at this time and therefore not available for immediate review.  Additionally, in accordance with the Louisiana Public Records Law, the City of New Orleans strives to promptly release all records which contain only public information and are not otherwise exempt from the Public Records Law. The City must balance its commitment to open access with its legal obligation to review public records for such exceptions and exemptions prior to release. 

As soon as the custodian notifies our office that the records have been compiled and are available for review, we will notify you to schedule a mutually agreeable time to review or purchase copies of the records.  Thank you for your request, and we look forward to working with you to provide public records in a fair and efficient manner.

Thank you,

City Attorney's OfficeCity of New Orleans
