This response was scheduled to be sent out today; however, City Hall is closed today and I am unable to process the request as planned. I request an additional extension of seven days to fulfill the request.

Thank you for your patience.

Good afternoon -

The City of York has been closed since August 6, 2020, due to a physical attack on its IT servers. I am unable to access any documents, including those related to this request. At this time, I am unable to estimate when a response will be forthcoming.

There are several options: we can put the request on 'hold' until the servers are repaired/replaced; or you can withdraw the request and resubmit it next month or when the City of York has functioning servers (I will contact you at that time); or we can deny the request as this is a disastrous situation for the City of York. I am also open to suggestions.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I am hopeful that the request will be filled prior to that time.
