Good afternoon Ann,

Thank you for your Freedom of Access Act request dated July 12, 2021.

Our Finance Department is seeking more information about item number 3 included in your request. We have interpreted your request to be for all staff salaries in all City departments, and the source of their salaries. Is this the information that you are seeking?

Clarifying the information you are looking for will help us determine how long it will take staff to fulfill your request. Per our policies, the City does not waive fees for requests that exceed one hour of staff time. If there is specific information you are looking for that may limit the breadth of your request, it may help us keep the amount of staff time to fulfill your request under one hour.

Once we receive clarification, we will notify you of any fees that are associated with your request.

Clarification Provided

Hi Danica,

Thanks for your note. We are looking for the past two years only, and yes, are interested in staff salaries in all City departments. We are mostly interested in the source of those funds, and whether they are from municipal, state, or federal sources. Thank you!
