Report:A-2018-027
Report Date:December 19, 2018
Public Body:Town of Placentia
Summary: An Applicant made three access to information requests to the Town, addressed to the Mayor. After receiving no response or acknowledgment of the requests from the Town, the Applicant complained to this Office. While the Town processed the requests after intervention by this Office, significant issues remained with the completeness of the responsive records, the reasonableness of the Town’s search and the Town’s compliance with the ATIPPA, 2015. The Commissioner recommended that all Town employees and Council members receive formal access to information training.
