It is unfortunate that one has to rely on the Freedom of Information legislation to access information.
My request and the required $5.00 fee was for: Correspondence from CAO Miceli to the OPP regarding the police costing, including, but not limited to, letters, emails and notes regarding telephone calls from him and his staff.
Mayor Aldo DiCarlo stated in part, in response to the Windsor Police Proposal Requires FOI Application: “The entire process, short of the operations information, was public and transparent.”

An appeal has been filed.
