Communications

From: Benjamin Lesser

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the current list by subject matter, of all records in the possession of the agency.

Per NEW YORK PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6, Section 87(3):

"Each agency shall maintain:

[....]

(c) a reasonably detailed current list by subject matter, of all records in the possession of the agency, whether or not available under this article. Each agency shall update its subject matter list annually, and the date of the most recent update shall be conspicuously indicated on the list."

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Benjamin Lesser

Ms. Anderson -

Thank you for speaking on the phone just now regarding FOIL request for the subject matter listing maintained by DEP. As we discussed by phone, the agency's records retention schedule would satisfy this request. Please let me know if I can provide any further details or clarification, and I look forward to reviewing responsive documents as you send them.

Thank you,

Hello -

As we responded in February, please send the document that fulfills the statutory requirement that each agency have a listing of records maintained by the agency.

Thank you.

From: Farren, Brenda

To whom it may concern:

Another email again today from MUCKROCK NEWS? Is this Mr. Lesser or Mr. Musgrave, because I’m trying to work with you on this request… I have sent you some documents also an explanation as to why this request is taking longer than we thought… please don’t send me a reminder every day of the task I need to do to fulfill your request. I’m not ignoring your request, we just don’t have the man power to deliver your request in a timely fashion… when we spoke to you, Atty. Belina Anderson and I on April 20th 2015, you were willing to work with us on this. So, Thanking you in advance for your patients. Please email me your telephone number so Atty. Belina and I can speak with you instead of these emails.

Thank you,

Ms. Farren -

My previous email was sent to confirm that this request for DEP's subject matter listing is the sole request submitted by Mr. Lesser for which no document has been received from DEP. As we received no response to our February clarification, I wanted to emphasize that the document we seek is required by statute. If DEP does not maintain this document, please reply to this effect.

We have not been sending, nor will we send, daily emails. However, we send a reminder on a regular basis to ensure that an outstanding request is still on your radar.

MuckRock's office number is 617-299-1832. However, email is our preferred means of communicating regarding FOIL requests.

Respectfully,
Shawn Musgrave
MuckRock
