Such requests are to be made at the office of the Village Administration Building at 600 Main St. NW, Bourbonnais, Illinois, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. In the event that the Village Finance Director is not available during the times described above, the Village Assistant Finance Director is designated as the Deputy FOIA Officer to whom such initial requests are to be made. Except in instances when records are furnished immediately, the FOIA Officer, or his designees, shall receive requests submitted to the Village under the Freedom of Information Act, ensure that the Village responds to requests in a timely fashion and issue responses under the Act.
How many days does the public body have to respond to a FOIA request?
The Village of Bourbonnais has five business days from the day that request is received, and 21 business days to respond to a request that is made for a commercial purpose. The working day response timeline begins the day after any employee or official of the public body received the request for information. However, that time period may be extended for an additional five business days from the date of the original due date if:
If additional time is needed, the public body must notify the requestor in writing within five business days after the receipt of the request of the statutory reasons for the extension and when the requested information will be produced.
