I need you to assist me with complaint letter to NYSDEC about delayed / almost completely redacted FOIL. Clearsky Clear waters Project: Paralegal or other with legal / environmental knowledge (especially environmental) needed to help gather FOIA information from documents held in New Paltz. of merit for your resume.
I requested the DEC to comply with normal FOIL process three months ago and they agreed at time and asked me to wait while they "doctored" the FOIL; NYSDEC staff have gone in opposite direction on supplying normal FOIL for some unknown reason. Kindly estimate your construct of a short letter to FOIL DEC based upon this case law https://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/2016%20Case%20Law%20Summary%20Update.pdf
It seems by lying and delaying the NYDEC is putting itself in harms way for the company with long established criminal record Oldcastle CRH / Tilcon as well as the public and wildlife interest from enormous pollution potentials at hand and tested. It makes no sense to do it but DEC is structuring a simple 2.5 year FOIL. Let me know cost of such letter to FOIL staff at DEC.
THE DEC FOIL personnel (what appears to be Halina Duda / a stand in Senior COuncil Carol Krebs) released a redacted set of documents mostly blacked out and redacted of normal need to know information and also contra to what Halina Duda communicated me on 03 May 2017 would only be personal names (redacted and blacked out). It was in response to complaints I made per our discussions. Senior Council emailed my about end of May 2017 she was now in charge of FOIL, then she (Ms. Krebs) later in June 2017 told me to stop emailing her because she has nothing to do with FOIL< Now, on her own volition, in July and AUgust Ms. krebs made herself the point person on FOIL abruptly.
This past week and last week we got added FOIL documents after a delayed 19 July on site collection in New Paltz NYSDEC office (still incomplete FOIL as videos, other documents without redaction and phone voice recordings are part of it) that should have been there with others (still missing) on 19 July 2017 when we went to New Paltz, NY to gather and review my FOIL request.
