Should Teaneck Hire for Records Requests?
Township officials say they face a daily flood of public records requests
Teaneck might have to hire another staff member to help process an "inordinate" amount of public records requests, Patch reported last week.
Under state law, officials must respond to the requests within seven business days. Some requests have been complex and eaten up hours of staff time, according to officials.
In the clerk's office alone, 10 to 20 public records requests come in daily, Clerk Jaime Evelina told the town council.
