Section 5-705          Access Procedures

 

A.        A request to inspect or copy a record shall be made to the legal custodian of the records affected by the request.  A request shall be deemed sufficient if it reasonably describes the requested record or the information requested.  A request for a record without a reasonable limitation as to the subject matter or length of time represented by the record does not constitute a sufficient request.  A request may be made orally, but a request must be in writing before an action to enforce the request is commenced under Sec. 19.37, Wis. Stats.  Except as provided hereinafter, no request may be refused because the person making the request is unwilling to be identified or to state the purpose of the request.  No request may be refused because the request is received by mail, unless prepayment of a fee is required under Sec. 5-704E.6 hereof.  A requester may be required to show acceptable identification whenever the requested record is kept at a private residence or whenever security reasons or Federal law or regulations so require.

   

B.        Each custodian, upon request for any records shall, as soon as practicable and without delay, either fill the request or notify the requester of the authority's determination to deny the request in whole or in part and the reasons therefor.  If the legal custodian, after conferring with the Village Attorney, determines that a written request is so general as to be unduly time-consuming, the party making the request may first be required to itemize his or her request in a manner which would permit reasonable compliance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

C.        A request for a record may be denied as provided in Sec. 5-706 hereof.  If a request is made orally, the request may be denied orally unless a demand for a written statement of the reasons denying the request is made by the requester within five business days of the oral denial.  If a written request is denied in whole or in part, the requester shall receive a written statement of the reasons for denying the request.  Every written denial of a request shall inform the requester that if the request for the record was made in writing, then the determination is subject to review upon petition for a Writ of Mandamus under Sec. 19.37(1), Wis. Stats., or upon application to the Attorney General or the District Attorney.

 

Section 5-706          Limitations on Right to Access.

 

A.        As provided by Sec. 19.36, Wis. Stats., the following records are exempt from inspection under this article:

 

            1.         Records specifically exempted from disclosure by state or federal law, or authorized to be exempted from disclosure by state law.

 

            2.         Any record relating to investigative information obtained for law enforcement purposes if federal law or regulations require exemption from disclosure or if exemption from disclosure is a condition to receipt of aids by the state.

 

            3.         Computer programs, although the material used as input for a computer program, or the material produced as a product of the computer program is subject to inspection.

 

            4.         A record or any portion of a record containing information qualifying as a common law trade secret.

 

B.        As provided by Sec. 43.30, Wis. Stats., public library circulation records are exempt from inspection under this article.

 

C.                In responding to a request for inspection, or copying of a record which is not specifically exempt from disclosure, the legal custodian, after conferring with the Village Attorney, may deny the request in whole or in part only if he or she determines that the harm to the public interest resulting from disclosure would outweigh the public interest in full access to the requested record.  Examples of matters for which disclosure may be refused include but are not limited to the following:

 

 

 

 

 

            1.         Records obtained under official pledges of confidentiality which were necessary and given in order to obtain the information contained in them.

 

            2.         Records of current deliberations after a quasi-judicial hearing.

 

            3.         Records of current deliberations concerning employment, dismissal, promotion, demotion, compensation, performance or discipline of any Village officer or employee or the investigation of charges against a Village officer or employee, unless such officer or employee consents to such disclosure.

 

            4.         Records concerning current strategy for crime detection or prevention.

 

            5.         Records of current deliberations or negotiations on the purchase of Village property, investing of Village funds, or other Village business whenever competitive or bargaining reasons require non-disclosure.

 

            6.         Financial, medical, social or personal histories or disciplinary data of specific persons which, if disclosed, would be likely to have a substantial adverse effect upon the reputation of any person referred to in such history or data.
