Apoorvaa Mandar Bichu filed this request with the Sauk Centre Public Schools (isd 743) of Sauk Centre, MN.
Multi Request HVAC Maintenance Records
Est. Completion None
Payment Required


From: Apoorvaa Mandar Bichu

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, I hereby request the following records:

Related to district HVAC systems for the last five years:

Maintenance records
inspection reports
air quality tests
capital improvement reports for all district schools

As background, this request is filed as part of a journalism project looking at HVAC systems across schools in the United States, and similar requests are being filed in additional school districts.

If you have summary reports or other documents that are likely to include largely similar information and are easier to provide, I’m willing to accept those as a substitute.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, 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 10 business days.
