Burlington says...."NO!"

The City of Burlington's response to the  Freedom Of Information Act request
is an attachment to this E-mail.  A brief summation of the city's answer is: "No!"
The city official who answered the federation FOIA did not care for the form or
content of the material sought in the federation's FOIA request.
It was the Chief Administrative Officer, not the City Attorney or the law firm the
city uses, who answered the FOIA.
The Vermont Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs has been reviewing the city's 
response will be filing a second FOIA very shortly.  Vermont's FOIA statute is
very layperson friendly and the city is taking an obstructive stance on this FOIA.
