Communications

From: Benjamin Lesser

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the current list by subject matter, of all records in the possession of the agency.

Per NEW YORK PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6, Section 87(3):

"Each agency shall maintain:

[....]

(c) a reasonably detailed current list by subject matter, of all records in the possession of the agency, whether or not available under this article. Each agency shall update its subject matter list annually, and the date of the most recent update shall be conspicuously indicated on the list."

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Benjamin Lesser

Mr. Bruzzese and Ms. Lindsey -

Apologies for your difficulties in emailing responses to MuckRock's inquiries regarding the FOIL requests submitted to Utica Police Department and the Office of the Mayor for the following documents:

1) FOIL rules and regulations
2) FOIL request log
3) Subject matter listing
4) Employee listing.

Per my conversation with Mr. Bruzzese, please confirm that the attached letter and FOIL tracking number 14-196 are meant to cover all requests submitted by Mr. Lesser to the two separate agencies.

Apologies again for the difficulty in getting in touch with us via email, and thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Best,
Shawn Musgrave

Hello,

We have received the attached letter signed by Deputy City Clerk Michelle George and dated February 20, 2015.

As explained previously, the request for the subject matter listing is not fulfilled by referring to the NYS Records Retention Schedule. This is an entirely separate document that the state Freedom of Information Law statute requires each agency to maintain.

Here is the relevant portion of the statute, for your reference, NEW YORK PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6, Section 87(3):

"Each agency shall maintain:

[....]

(c) a reasonably detailed current list by subject matter, of all records in the possession of the agency, whether or not available under this article. Each agency shall update its subject matter list annually, and the date of the most recent update shall be conspicuously indicated on the list."

Also attached is the subject matter listing provided by the Utica City School District, as an example of the above document as provided in response to a FOIL request.

Hopefully, this clears up any confusion so that the City of Utica is able to complete these FOIL requests in a timely fashion.

Thank you.
