Your record request #24-8119 has been submitted successfully.

Thank you, the City of New Orleans Law Department 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.

Also, please note that there may be a delay in responding to requests for email. Requests for email must first be sent to the City's IT Department to retrieve the requested emails. The emails must then be examined to determine if there is any material that must be redacted for privacy concerns and otherwise.

As soon as the custodian notifies our office that the records have been compiled you will be invoiced by email. Once you pay the invoice, you may download the records. Alternatively, you may schedule a 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
