Fix The Process

In the Town of Evans, the supervisor determines what documents, if any, will be provided under FOIL. The supervisor is also the town's FOIL Appeal Officer.


It is ludicrous to believe that the supervisor will overrule herself upon an appeal!


In the case of an entity like the Town of Evans, when documents are denied, the town attorney should be required to review the reasons for the denial.


All persons involved in the FOIL process should be listed on the denial letter with a description of their roll.
