Pursuant to the state open records law 5 Ill. Comp. Stat. 140/1 to 140/11.6, I write to request access to and a copy of health department inspection reports (2017 and 2018) for restaurant "Tsim Sha Tsui Hot Pot Cafe", with 1627 Chicago Ave, Evanston, IL 60201. If your agency does not maintain these public records, please let me know who does and include the proper custodian's name and address.
I agree to pay any reasonable copying and postage fees of not more than $0. If the cost would be greater than this amount, please notify me. Please provide a receipt indicating the charges for each document.
As provided by the open records law, I will expect your response within five (5) working days. See 5 Ill. Comp. Stat. 140/3(d).
If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely. Also, please provide all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material.
I would note that willful violation of the open records law can result in the award of reasonable attorney fees. See 5 Ill. Comp. Stat. 140/11(i).
Thank you for your assistance.
