I spoke with the Captain about your requests and also with the City Clerk for the City of Plattsburgh. The City Clerk, Sylvia Parrotte has informed me that she took care of two out of the three requests you sent us and as for the third request, which is the one asking for a log of all requests for agency records under the Freedom of Information Law, we do not keep a log. FOIL requests are only required to be kept for 6 months as per the MU-1 Schedule that our city has adopted. There is no log, therefore, your request for one has been denied. Sorry for the inconvenience.
