Mr. Smith,

Your are hereby notified that your request for public records has been determined to be unduly burdensome pursuant to Section 3(g) of FOIA. The City of Evanston has hundreds of ordinances since its incorporation in 1872.  The extraordinary volume of documents and staff hours to fill the request  is too burdensome on City resources to produce the request as drafted.  Please contact the Clerk's Office at 847-448-8148 or at 847-448-8248 to discuss narrowing the scope of the request.

Mario Treto, Jr.

Assistant City Attorney
