Also, I am requesting that the data be sent in Excel format.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by 1 M.R.S.A. § 408(6). 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.

I'm sorry, I don't seem to understand. Does the Clerk's Office not keep those files, or do I need to go to another department? Or does the city not keep those records at all?
