Dear Mr. Skelding:

I write in response to your request below dated September 26, 2014 pursuant to the N.Y. Freedom of Information Law (N.Y. Public Officers Law, Article 6):

REQUEST: "All emails possessed by City College that meet the following conditions: 1. Sent to or from email addresses of the domain @cityhall.nyc.gov. 2. Sent from January 1, 2014 through the date when this request is processed, inclusive."

Response?: Your request is hereby granted in full. After a diligent search, The City College of New York has located 442 pages of responsive emails. Given the number of responsive emails and the total pages involved, and given the fact that the responsive emails are from numerous different email accounts, we are not able to produce the documents to you in electronic format, but rather only as hard copies.

The fee for copies of the 442 pages of responsive documents, at 25 cents per page, is $110.50; we do not waive copying fees when we respond to FOIL requests in hard copy. Please send a check in this amount, addressed to my attention at the address indicated below, and made payable to "The City College of New York," and we will promptly mail you copies of the responsive documents.
