(1) Any person who objects to the denial of a request for a public record may petition for prompt review of such action by tendering a written request for review to the town attorney’s attention, delivered to staff at Town Hall during regular business hours, or sent via electronic mail to the town attorney, whose electronic mail address shall either be posted on the town’s website or provided upon request by town staff. The written request shall contain or quote any statement by the town employee that constituted or accompanied the denial.
(2) Immediately after receiving written request for review, the town attorney shall request a response from the town employee who denied the request. The town attorney or the town attorney’s designee shall immediately consider the matter and either affirm or reverse such denial within five business days following the receipt of the written request for review of the denial.
