Keith Jacques, Esq Woodman Edmands Danylik Austin Smith & Jacques 234 Maine St PO Box 468 Biddeford, ME 04005
CC: James Bennett, City Manager
Dear Attorney Jacques,
Under the Maine Freedom of Access Act § 402 et seq.,, I am requesting any and all information regarding any amount of at least $25 that came from funds that are directly or indirectly controlled by at least one Biddeford Employee or City Official. Further, I'm requesting to understand the exact amounts, terms, timing and all communication that led to any investment or contribution being finalized. If, in fact, there was less than $25 directly or indirectly contributed by the City of Biddeford I would like confirmation that this is the case.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me of the amount. However, I would request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s general understanding. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.
If you intend to deny this request, I will expect to hear from you within the five business days mandated by the law. Also, if you expect a significant delay in responding to this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
