Re: Freedom of Information Law ("FOIL") Appeal No. 06-03-8A
FOIL Request No. 05-1277 (Walgreens, East Ridge Road/Culver)

Dear Mr. Seeger:

Following our recent telephone conversation you provided me with a memorandum dated January 25, 2006, in which you identified DEC Staffperson Timothy Walsh as having knowledge of a spill event regarding the Walgreens, East Ridge Road/Culver property which is the subject of your FOIL inquiry. In following up with Mr. Walsh, DEC Staff has identified a Spill Number for the event; the Regional Staff advises that Spill records are accessed by Spill Number.

Regional Staff has identified records responsive to your request in a Spill file. Staff is not asserting any exemption regarding these records. Please contact the DEC Region 8 FOIL Officer, Kim Shutts (Tel: 585-226-2466), to arrange to review these records. Based upon this disposition which fully satisfies your FOIL request, we deem your FOIL appeal, above referenced, withdrawn.

Sincerely yours,

Kevin J. Casutto
Administrative Law Judge
