The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

This message is to notify you your open records request is now closed. I emailed you July 28, 2017, with a cost estimate to locate the DNR files. I followed up with contacts on August 3, 2017, and August 15, 2107, asking how you would like to proceed. On the 15th, I indicated that if I didn't hear from you within five business days, the open records request will be closed. As you have not responded, I will assume you do not wish to review the records. If you change your mind, you may submit a new open records request.

We are committed to service excellence.
