How many days will it take the Village to respond to my FOIA request?
The Village of Indian Head Park has five (5) business days (not including weekends and holidays) from the day after it receives the request to respond. That deadline may be extended for an additional five (5) business from the date of the original due date if:
- The requested documents are stored off-site
- A substantial number of documents are required to fulfill the request
- The request requires an extensive search of documents
- The requested documents have not been located and require additional effort to find
- The requested documents need to be reviewed by staff to determine whether all or part of individual documents are exempt and may not be disclosed

If additional time is needed, the Village of Indian Head Park must notify the requester in writing within 5 business days after the receipt of the request detailing the reasons for the extension and when the documents will be produced.
