The appeal has was denied by the Office of Open Records and confirmed that the Authority had the right to require prepayment for the records.  The decision also confirmed that our proposed redactions were appropriate.  The decision acknowledged that account numbers should be redacted based on the RTKL exemption for utility account numbers, and customer names and addresses should be redacted based on the constitutional right to privacy, we successfully established the information is subject to constitutional protections.  Great job by firm attorney Nicole Feight!
