From: Lamontagne, Danica Sent: Friday, April 29, 2022 9:14 AM To: 'email@example.com' <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: RE: FOAA Requets
Hello Mr. Brophey,
Thank you for your Freedom of Access Act Request dated April 22, 2022. I have directed staff to move forward on gathering the documents that you have requested.
The City of Biddeford provides the first two hours of staff time on all FOAA requests at no charge, and there is a fee of $15 for each additional hour of staff time. We expect this request to take two hours of staff time; therefore, we do not anticipate any fees associated with the request.
I expect that I should be able to provide the documents to you via email by late next week.
