We are making this request pursuant to the California Public Records Act ("Act";,r and request the above documents pursuant to section 6253(a) of the Act. In addition, we request these materials pursuant to Article I, section 3ft) of the California Constitution, which provides a constitutional right of access to information concerning the conduct of the government. Article I, section 3(b) provides that any statutory right to information shall be broadly construed to provide the greatest access to government information and further requires that any statute that limits the right of access to information be narrowly construed. In responding to this request, please bear in mind that any exemptions from disclosure the City may believe to be applicable are to be narrowly construed.2 If the City declines to produce any of the requested documents on the grounds of an exemption, please bear in mind that the Public Records Act imposes a duty on the City to distinguish between the exempt and the non-exempt portion of any such records, and to attempt in good faith to redact the exempt portion and to disclose the balance of such documents.s Please bear in mind further that should the City choose to withhold any document from disclosure, the City has a duty under Government Code section 6255, subd. (a) to 'Justi$r withholding any record by demonstrating that the record in question is exempt under express provisions" of the Public Records Act or that "the public interest served by not disclosing the record clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure of the record."a The City may not seek recovery of costs for any staff time related to responding to this Public Records Act request.s If any of the requested items are available on the Internet, we request that the City direct us to the appropriate URL web address or other site for accessing the documents. Pursuant to Government Code section 6253.9, if the requested documents are in electronic format and are 10 MB or less (or can be easily broken into chunks of 10 MB or less), please email them as attachments.
