I also request any and all communication between any City Officials or Employees and members of the Police Commission Two commissioners expressed that they wanted to meet over the last year but were denied the opportunity. I request an explanation of why the Police Commission did or did not meet for these same time periods.
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.

If you intend to deny this request, I will expect to hear from you within the five business days mandated by the law.
