RE: Request under the California Public Records Act § 6250 et seq.
Pursuant to my rights under the California Public Records Act § 6250 et seq., I ask to obtain a copy of the following, which I understand to be held by your agency:
A record of all citations issued from Nov. 1, 2014 to present for violations relating to California penal code 640(a)(2)(b)(1): Eating or drinking in or on a system facility or vehicle in areas where those activities are prohibited by that system.
The response should include: name of person cited, age of person cited, race of person cited, date of citation, time of citation, location of citation. Any additional details of the citation, such as what the person was eating and if the citation was paid or contested, would be appreciated.
I ask for a determination on this request within 10 days of your receipt of it, and an even prompter reply if you can make that determination without having to review the records in question.
If you determine that any or all or the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, I ask you to note whether, as is normally the case under the Act, the exemption is discretionary, and if so whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold the information.
If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, I ask that you redact it for the time being and make the rest available as requested.
In any event, please provide a signed notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed.
If I can provide any clarification that will help expedite your attention to my request, please contact me at (415) 902-8377. I am requesting that you waive all applicable fees associated with this request as I believe this request is in the interest of my family and is not for commercial use. If you deny this request for a fee waiver, please advise me in advance of the estimated charges associated with fulfilling this request. Please send me a detailed and itemized explanation of those charges.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
