To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

On the shore of the Topock Marsh in the Lake Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, there was a trailer/RV park at an area known as five mile landing what has since been shut down.

This is a Freedom of Information Act request for all agreements and communication with the operators of this trailer/RV park between January 1, 2007 and the date this request is processed.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jason Smathers

From: Jason Smathers

This is an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act. The Freedom of Information Act prohibits all search fees for non-commercial requesters when the agency has failed to meet a statutory time limit. The FOIA allows 20 days to process a request, and an additional 10 days in some situations. However, I made my request in June of 2014 and I did not receive a response until January of 2015. Therefore, I request the search be completed without charge.
