My name is Jordan Kinser with ORDR (Open Records Data Retrieval) and I would like to make a request for a copy of electronic records containing all residential and commercial building, demolition, and sub/trade (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc.) permits applied for in Lakewood, OH from January 1, 2014 to present. An example of the information I am seeking would include, but is not limited to: permit number, issue date, location, permit type, status and a description of the work done as well as contractor details and valuations.
Back in November 2018, your jurisdiction helped to provide my colleague Amber McGilvary with several Excel (.csv) files containing this permit information. I’ve attached a sample. I would appreciate receiving this same type of document in the same format and with the same fields of descriptive data, if available, for the requested timespan. If this format is not available, we can accept any format as long as it contains the permit information—excluding that which is scanned or printed.
If there are any fees associated with this request for electronic information, please send me a detailed invoice before providing any records or performing any billable work related to this request. Please let me know if you have any questions, or if there is someone else I can contact for this information. I thank you in advance for your help and look forward to hearing back at your earliest convenience.
