From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act ("APRA"), I hereby request the following records:

Written procedures for access to the agency’s public records, including any records request forms required or suggested by the agency.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

Hi,

I have attached the RI General Laws regarding Access to Publivc
Records-these are the laws which we abide by. Also, attached our own
tailored request form and some info from the SOS. I hope that this is
what you are looking for.

Ms. Kelly --

Apologies. At the time, it was not clear that you were responding on behalf of both the Clerk and the Finance departments. I have closed this request in our system, as of April 1.

I sent another APRA request to the West Warwick Police Department, but have not received any reply. Does your April 1 response cover that department, as well?

Thank you for your help!

From: Marianne Kelly

Hi,
If your request was the same, yes, my answer would suffice. We are all bound by the same Access to Records laws.

To be absolutely clear, did the West Warwick Police Department forward this request to you, as the Finance Department did, for a combined response? Again, I have not heard any response back from the police.

Thank you!

The Town Clerk's Office is the department that handles all FOI requests. We either answer the request or send it to the appropriate department. Your fax was sent to the Town Clerks' Office and while I did not receive anything directly from the police department, APRA applies the same to all departments. What fax number did you use for the PD?

Hello,

I sent APRA request with identical wording to the Town Clerk, Finance Department and Police Department individually, as I was seeking the form(s) and procedure(s) used by each to process such requests. I sent the request for the West Warwick Police Department to 401-822-9206, and have yet to hear anything back from them.

Thank you for your help!

Hi,
I thought that I sent everything that you requested. The same information applies to all departments. What are you looking for? If you want to speak directly to the police you can call 401-822-0234 and speak to the Chief's secretary, Ann Marie or email her at apetrozzi@westwarwickri.org.
