Location of Access
An officer for public information complies with a request for public information by:
- Providing information for inspection or duplication in the District’s offices; or
- Sending copies of the information by first class mail, if the requestor requests that copies be provided and pays the postage and any other applicable charges that the requestor has accrued.
Time for Response
An officer for public information shall promptly produce public information for inspection, duplication, or both, on application by any person. “Promptly” means as soon as possible under the circumstances, that is, within a reasonable time, without delay. The District may not automatically withhold for ten business days public information not excepted from disclosure.
If an officer for public information cannot produce the public information for inspection or duplication within ten business days after the date the information is requested, the officer shall certify that fact in writing to the requestor and set a date and hour within a reasonable time when the information will be available for inspection or duplication.
If the requested information is unavailable because it is in storage or active use, an officer for public information shall certify this fact in writing to the requestor and set a date and hour within a reasonable time when the information will be available for inspection or duplication.
