Frankly, all this time spend filling FOIA requests, sending messages to BSBP, you should highly consider applying for jobs because those make incomes, not eating staff members time at the BSBP or who else you these to. The amount of FIOA requests you sent list, I'm socked it has broke my phone. 

I am on this list because helpful information is posted in summary, with respect I hope you have layer working with you if going Sue the BSBP, the emails are to vague, but of course your only providing part of information, If your going to post to list, please either post all that information or none of it. 
Thanks for understanding that eats my inbox.

Re:  EOC Minutes

Dear Mr. Harcz, Jr.:

As I have stated before, please be advised that the Bureau of Services for Blind Persons (BSBP) has no control over the Elected Operators Committee (EOC).  Any problem you have with the EOC should be taken up with the EOC. 

As we have previously discussed, BSBP has no control over the Advisory Commission.  Any issues you have with the Advisory Commission must be taken up with them.

BSBP only has the authority and power to control its own activities.  For example, we cannot order the Board of Medicine to provide you with their minutes.  When we receive minutes that have been approved by the EOC or the Advisory Commission, we will post them on our website as quickly as possible.

Please note that nothing within the federal American with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (RA), as amended, or the state's FOIA (MCL 15.231 et seq.) requires a public body to process

Letter - P.J. Harcz, Jr.

FOIA requests free of charge.  Further, while the ADA and Section 504 of the RA may mandate that, upon request, material be produced in an FOIA

accessible format without charge, neither the ADA or Section 504 of the RA preclude a public body from charging costs under the state's FOIA. Thusly, please note that no labor fee charges have been, or will be, assessed to convert existing, nonexempt public records responsive to your requests into an accessible format to forward to you.
