Re: Freedom of Information Law [FOIL] Request; NYC PARKS & RECREATION

All documents associated with the expenditure incurred for the all horses used by the NYC Parks & Recreation department.

Dear Records Access Officer:

Under the provisions of the New York Freedom of Information Law, Article 6 of the Public Officers Law, I hereby request records or portions thereof pertaining to:

The use of horses used by the Parks and recreation department.
1. Itemized costs of all expenses incurred for the housing and general maintenance of horses used by the NYC Parks and Recreation PEP division.

2. Itemized expenses for the upkeep and maintenance of all horses used by the NYC Parks & Recreation department, including housing, transportation, food, veterinarian bills, purchasing, therapy etc.

Please supply the records without informing me of fees if the fees for this request are not in excess of $100.00.

As you know, the Freedom of Information Law requires that an agency respond to a request within five business days of receipt of a request. Therefore, I would appreciate a response as soon as possible and look forward to hearing from you shortly.

If for any reason any portion of my request is denied, please inform me of the reasons for the denial in writing and provide the name and address of the person or body to whom an appeal should be directed.
