To Whom It May Concern:

 

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.) ("CPRA”), the Vallejo Sunshine Ordinance, and all other applicable laws, please disclose the following records.

 

 

  • All records reflecting Police Chief Andrew Bidou’s total anticipated take-home pay for 2019, including consulting pay following his planned retirement on April 30, 2019.

  • Any contract or agreement relating to same.

  • Any record containing an accurate calculation of Chief Bidou’s monthly pension and benefit amounts, including any pension income from his term as Acting Fire Chief.

 

The fundamental rule of the CPRA is a presumption of public access. “In other words, [A]ll public records are subject to disclosure unless the Legislature has expressly provided to the contrary.” Williams v. Superior Court, 5 Cal. 4th 337 (1993). This presumption finds further support in the California Constitution, as amended by Proposition 59 in 2004. “A statute, court rule, or other authority, including those in effect on the effective date of this subdivision, shall be broadly construed if it furthers the people's right of access, and narrowly construed if it limits the right of access.” Cal. Const. Art. 1 § 3(b)(2).

 

Please apply a fee waiver to this request. If the request for a fee waiver is denied, please provide notification of any duplication costs exceeding $20 before you duplicate the records. If the request for a fee waiver is denied, please further provide an index of all other requests since 2014 for which a fee waiver was denied, and the reason therefor.

 

Please publish all correspondence between the city and request regarding this request to Vallejo NextRequest. Please disclose the records electronically by posting them to Vallejo NextRequest. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch.
