Hi there

Your first City of New Orleans record request (request number #20-558) has been submitted.
It is currently unpublished and is not available for the general public to view.

***CYBER ATTACK UPDATE. DELAYS POSSIBLE. CERTAIN RECORDS UNAVAILABLE***

Thank you, our office has received your Public Records Law request. In light of the City Hall cyber attack on Friday, December 13th, 2019, please be advised that it may take longer than usual to fulfill your request. Please note that many records remain unavailable while City network infrastructure, systems, and applications are offline and inaccessible. If the records you request are not available due to the cyber attack, we will close your request and advise that you resubmit your request at a future date. We appreciate your patience while the Office of Information Technology and Innovation works to restore all City operations to normal.

***********

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 of New Orleans
