RECORDS REQUEST

Dear Records Officer:

Pursuant to THE STATE PUBLIC RECORDS LAW I request access to:

1. HIV/AIDS Surveillance & Hepatitis C Report 2019 for the New York City and the Bronx
2. Syringe collection both off the ground and in the kiosks in the Bronx across different time periods, ever since they were installed.
3. Who is responsible for the syringe kiosks program right now?
4. Longitude and latitude information of the syringe disposal kiosks. The one on NYC Open Data does not match with the records given the City Parks Department.

I would like to receive the information in the following format: electronic, CSV / Excel, and in machine readable format.

I would like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of public health, opioid epidemic and drug-related deaths and infections. Please know that I am a member of the media, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than five business days, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies.

If you deny any or all part of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for considering my request.
Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,
Frida Cai
