PR 17-54 Cote v. City of Warwick No Violation Found

The Complainant alleged that the City of Warwick violated the APRA when, after he paid the fee associated with his APRA request, the City informed him it would take an additional five (5) to seven (7) days to produce the copies. The Complainant alleged that period of time was unreasonable. The Deputy City Clerk indicated in her affidavit that her duties extended beyond processing and tracking public records requests made to the City, and this particular request required her to contact the Fire Department to obtain the requested information. We find nothing to support the Complainant's averment that the five to seven business estimate which in actuality the City responded to on the third business day violated the APRA.
