PR 18-09 Harris v. City of Providence No Violation

The Complainant alleged that the City violated the APRA when it responded to her request by seeking prepayment and stating that review and redaction would take 123 hours. Based on the evidence presented, including the large scope of the request, we found that this estimate was reasonable. See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-4(b). Specifically, we noted that the Complainant's request for approximately 7,400 calendar entries equated to one minute of review and redaction per entry. Based on the City's documented time responding to a previous similar request concerning calendar entries, we found that the City's estimate did not violate the APRA.
