The Right-to-Know Officer shall review all written requests for access to public records. As soon as practical, but no later than five (5) business days after receiving a written request to access public records, the Right-to-Know Officer shall respond to such requests in writing consistent with Act 3 of 2008, the Right-to-Know Law.

Appeals shall be filed within fifteen (15) business days of the mailing date of the Authority’s response, or within fifteen (15) days of a deemed denial, as the case may be.
