Good evening,

Per the Legal Division-

In response to your request for " Any and all emails concerning the inter-agency or inter-department meetings to plan for possible unrest in the wake of grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson, Mo. police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown, as described here: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/07/us-usa-missouri-shooting-plans-idUSKCN0HW1TF20141007”, ( article dated October 7, 2014) the City of St. Louis Information Technology (“IT”) Division estimates it will take a minimum of two to four hours to conduct a search defined as follows: E-mails between Missouri Highway Patrol, St. Louis County Police, St. Louis City Police and Ferguson Police which contain the word “meeting”, “grand jury decision”, “Darren Wilson” and “Michael Brown” as of that time. The assigned programmer’s rate is $35.60 per hour. If you wish to proceed, pre-payment of $71.20, payable to the “City of St. Louis” should be returned to the SLMPD Public Information Office, 1915 Olive, St. Louis MO 63103. Upon receipt of pre-payment, the email search will be conducted.

You will be advised if responsive emails are identified. If so, Legal staff will review each to confirm whether or not they are open under the Missouri Sunshine Law. This review is at a rate of $24.00 per hour, and will be assessed in addition to the initial cost of the IT staff. Until a search is complete, it is difficult to estimate how long the legal review process can take. Based on the above criteria, an estimate is a minimum of two to three hours. Please be advised, however, Legal staff has no way of knowing the number of emails, as well as their respective content, that may be reviewed, and/or ultimately produced, until the process is undertaken.

If you wish to proceed, please remit initial pre-payment of $71.20 (payable to the "City of St. Louis") to the SLMPD Public Information Office, 1915 Olive, St. Louis, MO 63103. Additional costs will be assessed based on the above processes and any responsive and open records will be provided upon payment of the balance in full.

Thank you,
