Recently Rye Mayor French reported the city would be revising the city FOIL procedures in his letter to citizens. Much has been made of all the FOIL requests made by former Rye City cop and council candidate Tim Chittenden.
So trivia fans…
Of the approximately 100 FOIL requests each year made to Rye City, how many of these FOIL requests came from Chittenden in 2010?
We'll run the answer Wednesday. Tim Chittenden has provided the answer. MyRye.com has tried confirming the number with Rye City but there has been no reply.
Freedom of Information Law
As part of the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL), the City is reviewing how to make FOIL requests easier for the public to request information and also easier for staff to transact. The City gets about 100 requests per year — the majority of which are labor intensive. The City is incorporating electronic technology and reviewing procedures to make the process more efficient.
