The simplest requests for immediately available records (Category 1) are responded to within 5 business days, and often on the date of the request. For all other requests, the City will provide a written response to the requester within five business days with a reasonable estimate of the time necessary to make the records available. Category 2 requests usually require between 5 and 30 business days, Category 3 records requests may require several weeks to several months. Category 4 records requests are the most complex, involve thousands of records, and often require review by the City Attorney. They may require several weeks to a year or more. For Category 3 and 4 requests, we respond in installments, supplying a portion of the responsive records each month until the request is complete.
