Dear Mr. Waltman,

The City is continuing to process your attached request, but requires additional time to do so. The City is currently processing a very large amount of Right to Know Law requests and appeals which has considerably strained our capacity to respond. Additionally, PPD requires additional time to finalize the processing of the fourth item of your request seeking financial records related to helicopter upkeep and purchases.

Would you please grant the City a two (2) week extension, until 9/13/17, to respond to your attached request?
Best,
