I am requesting to inspect certain writings available as public records under the California Public Records Act (California Government Code § 6250 et seq.) regarding the matters set forth below. For the purpose of this request, “public record” and “writing” have the meanings defined in California Government Code section 6252(e) and (g), respectively. Any reference to the City of Oakland (“the City”) includes all employees, officers, officials, agents and contractors of the City.
I am hereby requesting that the City promptly make the following public records available for review and inspection:
Any and all documents related to any efforts by the City to enforce or obtain compliance with the Oakland Municipal Code, the County of Alameda Health Code or the California Health and Safety Code at 8001 Bancroft Ave., Oakland, CA 94605, since June 1, 2012, including, but not limited to, complaint records, notices, orders, administrative citations, substandard building declarations, inspection reports, reinspection reports, correspondence, telephone records, memos, inspector’s notes and/or hearing records.
Please advise if the records are available in electronic format.
If any public record requested above is to be withheld and not made available for inspection, please state in writing the specific ground(s) for withholding the record. As to each record withheld, if any, please also provide the name and title of the official who made the decision to withhold the record and the name, title and address of the person or body, if any, to whom the decision to withhold the record may be appealed.
In addition, please provide information sufficient to identify the record(s), if any, withheld, including the title of the record, the nature of the record (e.g., letter, memo, e-mail, etc.), the number of pages in the record (original or copy), to whom the record was addressed, shown or circulated, the location of the record, and a statement of the subject matter sufficient to enable me and, if necessary, a court, to evaluate the basis for the decision to withhold the record from public inspection.
Should you have any questions about the scope of this request or desire further clarification, please contact me immediately as required by Government Code section 6253.1.
