To view or download your records, please: The City has not prepared a detailed exemption log, as only limited information has been redacted from the responsive records. The information normally provided in an exemption log, such as title, author, recipient, subject, and number of pages, is readily ascertainable from looking at the redacted records. Redactions have been applied throughout the documents pursuant to the following exemptions: RCW 42.56.070 and 5.60.060 -Attorney-client privilegedcommunication which contains records that reflect communicationbetween a client and an attorney for the purpose of seeking or providing legaladvice. RCW 42.56.420(4), Computer/Telecom Passwords/Security/Internal-Use Only Phone Numbers - Information regarding the infrastructure and security of computer and telecommunications networks, consisting of security passwords, security access codes and programs, access codes for secure software applications, security and service recovery plans, security risk assessments, and security test results is exempt because unauthorized access to the information could disrupt police operations, negatively affect police investigations, endanger citizens/law enforcement personnel, result in theft, fraud or other criminal activity, and expose law enforcement personnel to harassment. In addition, we redacted one of the alleged victim's (Lloyd Anderson) phone numbers to protect his privacy. If you disagree with this particular redaction, please let us know. This completes the City's response and closes your request. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Sincerely,
Stacy Irwin Mayor's Office
