RE: my public records request of July 15, 2013 (your identifier: P2013-2233)

Dear Ms. Friend Gray:

I requested SPD's May Day 2013 incident action plan almost three months ago. Your office first estimated that you would make it available to me in late August, then re-estimated mid-September, then re-estimated late September, then re-estimated mid-October, and today re-estimated late October. You have not once provided any indication of why you have revised these estimates. Please tell me what has repeatedly changed that caused your earlier estimated times of completion to be inaccurate by many weeks.

I think that in far less time than you have spent e-mailing these re-estimates, you could have pulled a copy of the plan and e-mailed it to me. The delay appears unreasonable to me. Approximately how much time is spent each week processing my request?

Cordially,
Phil Mocek
