On August 11th I FOILed the city for the bills submitted by Mark Schachner related to his work on the Text Amendment (in reality the zoning for Saratoga National Golf Course). Today I received a letter from the city attorney, Vince DeLeonardis, telling me that “you may reasonably expect a response, granting or denying this request, in approximately twenty (20) business days.”
Twenty business days is the maximum time they have to respond. The twenty days will be up around September 14th. Having been through this issue with the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority, I know that invoices for legal work are covered by the Freedom of Information Law. It should not be much of a challenge to find Schachner’s invoices. Why it should take twenty days is really unclear.
