PR 13-13 Law Office of Michael Kelly v. City of Woonsocket VIOLATION FOUND

Although the City eventually provided the Complainant with most documents responsive to its APRA request, the City violated the APRA when it failed to timely respond to the Complainant's APRA request. See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-7(a). The City was given ten (10) business days to provide a response explaining why this Department should not find the violation knowing and willful, or alternatively, reckless. The City further violated the APRA when it failed to provide the Complainant with documents responsive to Request No. 8, or in the alternative, provide the Complainant with a reason exempting these documents. See id. The City was given ten (10) business days to explain its lack of response to Request No. 8 and provide this Department with a response as to why the City's lack of response to Request No. 8 should not be found knowing and willful, or alternatively, reckless. A supplemental finding will follow.
