To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following New Jersey Open Public Records Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on May 4, 2021. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
The Office of the Clerk of the City of Newark has assigned your request tracking number PD-21-0588 CV-19 and CC-21-0016 CV-19 forwarded it to the Police Division and the City's Records Management Unit.
Please be advised that on March 20, 2020, the State Legislature enacted P.L. 2020, c.10, which amended the OPRA statute relaxing OPRA’s statutory deadlines for the duration of a Governor-declared state of emergency pursuant to the Disaster Control Act (N.J.S.A. App.A.9-33 et seq.), a public health emergency under the Emergency Health Powers Act (N.J.S.A. 26:13-1 et seq.), or when a state of local disaster emergency is declared by a county or by a municipality. On December 21, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 235 extending the initial State of Emergency to June 21, 2021.
In order to gather the documents responsive to your requests, the OPRA unit sends your requests to the respective City Departments, which actually created, received, or retained these documents. Since the State of Emergency, crucial City Staff have retired, become sick, and work a staggered schedule, which makes the time needed to gather responsive documents far longer than usual.
The Office of the Clerk received your request on May 5, 2021; therefore, this Office anticipates that both the Police Division and Records Management Unit will fill this request on June 5, 2021.
The Office of the Clerk of the City of Newark has received the attached response to your OPRA request from the Records Management Unit of the City of Newark. Attached please find a copy of your request and a copy of the police response.
