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

I am in receipt of your FOIL request. This FOIL is overly broad, I am unable to address your specific request.

Hello,

This is a FOIL for the subject matter listing required to be maintained by every government agency in the state of New York, as per the statute noted in the original request. This is an adequate description of the record sought. Please advise as to any further clarification might be provided.

Thank you.

I responded to this. In addition to this request being overly broad, I do not maintain a “List by subject matter” of FOIL requests.

From: MuckRock

Hello Ms. Segal -

This is not a request for a “List by subject matter” of FOIL requests. As indicated in both the original request letter of December 12 as well as the response of January 8 below, this is a request for a particular document required to be kept per NEW YORK PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6, Section 87(3).

The relevant section of the statute was included in the original FOIL request, and can be found online: http://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/foil2.html

Here once again is the relevant section of the statute that describes the document requested in the present FOIL request:
"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."

As this document is required to be kept as a matter of statute, please confirm that your agency maintains the subject matter listing, and provide a copy. Thank you.

From: Yvette Segal

Thank you. I will be responding in the next few business days.
