PR 15-43 Ryan v. Rhode Island Housing No Violation

The Complainant alleged that Rhode Island Housing violated the APRA when it failed to provide access to certain documents and when it extended the time to respond for twenty (20) business days. This Department determined that the documents that were not produced (meeting minutes, notices for future meetings, and a roster of past and present committee membership) was not maintained by Rhode Island Housing, and therefore, the APRA was not violated when these documents were not produced. See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-3(h). Rhode Island Housing also did not violate the APRA when it extended the time to respond to the APRA request since the evidence demonstrated other requests for information from the Complainants at or around the same time period of the instant APRA request and ultimately over 1,700 pages were produced.
