The requester wishes to review these files in its entirety.

Please be aware that the Open Record laws define “records” to include information that is maintained on paper as well as electronically stored records, such as data files, video, and unprinted emails.

Wisconsin Public Record laws shall be construed in every instance with the presumption of complete public access consistent with the conduct of government business. The denial of access to public records is generally

contrary to the public interest and only in exceptional cases can public records access be denied. Should you deny any part of this request, the law requires you to do so in writing and state what part of the law you believe entitles you to deny my request. {Wisconsin Statute 19.35,(4),(a)}

The law requires you to respond to this request “as soon as possible and without delay”. Compliance is mandatory by law. Comply and produce all the requested records or deny the records request (all or in part) within ten days.

Compliance at some unspecified future time is not authorized by the public records law. The records custodian has two choices: comply or deny. WTMJ, Inc. v. Sullivan, 204 Wis. 2d 452, 457-58, 555 N.W.2d 140, 142 (Ct. App. 1996).

To expedite and simplify the response, and in stewardship of our good earth’s resources, please respond to this request in an electronic media form.

If there are questions or clarification needed of this request, please inform me so I may clarify or refine this request.

Please promptly contact me so I may conduct an inspection of these records.

Respectfully submitted,

HOT Government & Harry Wait
