Dear Mr. Musgrave,

The Public Records Unit is in receipt of your records request below. Please note that the request was received by our office on June 13, 2014. However, due to the voluminous nature of the request and the number of requests pending, the Public Records Unit respectfully requests an extension of the time to respond by twenty (20) business days, pursuant to R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-3(e).

Having looked into this request and begun the process of retrieval, I have found that there are twenty six (26) arrest reports. It will take an estimated two (2) hours for review and redaction. In accordance with the Access to Public Records Act, the Public Records Unit may charge fifteen dollars ($15) per hour for review and redaction, with the first hour free. See R.I. Gen. Laws § 38-2-4(b). The estimate for this request is fifteen dollars ($15). The time to respond shall be tolled until your authorization and payment is received. Please note that you will only be charged the actual cost and any amount not used would be refunded.

Hello,

Please confirm whether the check has arrived. I also reiterate my request that these documents be sent electronically.

Best,
Shawn

From: Martone, Mario

Dear Mr. Musgrave,

I did receive your check, however, the check needs to be made out to the City of Providence. I am happy to try to move on several tracks here to expedite your request. My suggestion is that I will send your check back to you and if you can issue another one made out to the City of Providence that would be great. In the meantime, as I know that this is a clerical issue and not a payment issue, I will put together the documents responsive to your request, while we are sorting out the check matter, that way any delay will be minimal. I do not see any issue with providing you the documents electronically.
Thanks

Mario
