As provided by the Open Records law, I will expect your response as soon as practicable and without delay.


I will assume that if we don’t hear from you by June 13, 2008 that you have denied this request.


If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely.  Also, please provide all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material.


Please be advised that we are prepared to pursue whatever remedy necessary to obtain access to the requested records.  I would note that a violation of the Open Records law could result in the award of court costs, attorney fee’s and actual damages of not less than $100.00.  I would further note that if a court determines that your non-compliance with the law was arbitrary or capricious, it may award our organization punitive damages and attorney fees as well as fine you up to $1,000 dollars.
