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.

 

  • Any personnel policy regarding the use of a personal device or account to communicate about past, present or potential city business. This includes (but is not limited to) any policy or guidance relating to the use of personal email, social media, text messaging, instant messaging, or other forms of electronic communication in connection with official duties; it also includes, but is not limited to, the use of personal devices for same.

 

  • Any personnel policy document that applies to the Community Volunteer Coordinator job classification. This includes, but is not limited to, any code of conduct that applies to this job classification.

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 provide a determination on this request within 10 days of your receipt of it, and an even prompter reply if you can make that determination without having to review the records in question. If you determine that any or all of the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, please note whether, as is normally the case, the exemption is discretionary, and if so whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold the information. If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, please redact it for the time being and make the rest available as requested. In any event, please provide a signed notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed.

 

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 and via email to records@openvallejo.org. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch.

 

Thank you.
