Response

Good afternoon Mr. Boswell,

This is a response to your FOAA request dated August 16, 2021. We expect that it will take about two hours of staff time to fulfill your request.

It is the City of Biddeford’s policy to provide the first hour of work for a FOAA request at no cost. After the first hour, there is a charge of $15 per additional hour of staff time. Therefore, we expect the fee associated with this request to be $15. If the time needed to complete the work is less than the estimated two hours, you will only be charged for the actual time that it took to complete the request.

Please let me know if you would like to proceed with the request. If so, I will ask staff to begin gathering the documentation.


Best,

Danica Lamontagne
