Re: Freedom of Information Law ("FOIL") Appeal No. 05-20-3A

Dear Mr. Muscato:

By letter dated November 30, 2005, you appealed the failure of the Region 3 office of the Department of Environmental Conservation ("Department") to respond to your FOIL requests dated July 19, 2005 and August 9, 2005. Your appeal, which was assigned FOIL Appeal No. 05-20-3A, related to records concerning the Getty Service Station and the Development Disabilities Service Office in Wassiac, New York.

Pursuant to our voice mail messages of last week, I understand that Region 3 is providing you with access to the records that were the subject of your FOIL appeal. Accordingly, this resolves your appeal, and the appeal file shall be closed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Louis A. Alexander
Assistant Commissioner
