Dear Attorney Jacques,


Under the Maine Freedom of Access Act § 402 et seq., certain individuals of Concerned citizens of Biddeford (CCB) request a full accounting of how the $561,000 Federal entitlement community grant was spent from 1/1/2014 to present day.

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me of the amount. However, I would request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s general understanding. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.


If you intend to deny this request, I will expect to hear from you within the five business days mandated by the law. Also, if you expect a significant delay in responding to this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.


Thank you.
