For Commercial Requests

The City of LaSalle has twenty one (21) business days to respond to a request for information that is made for a commercial purpose.

Denial of Requests

The Freedom of Information Act is located in the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) (5 ILCS 140).
There are now two primary sections within the FOIA that cover exemptions. First, Section 7 of 5 ILCS 140 contains a long list of classes and subclasses exempt from inspection and copying. Section 7.5 thereafter sets forth a list of exemptions derived from other Illinois statutes.
In the event of a denial, you have the right to seek review by the Public Access Counselor:

(217) 558-0486
500 S. Second Street
Springfield, IL 62705

or you have the right to judicial review under Section 11 of FOIA.

Is the reason for this request a “commercial purpose” as defined in the Freedom of Information Act?
The Illinois Freedom of Information Act allows charges of 15 cents per hard copy for every page over 50 pages. Charges for copies needed to be done at a professional printer shall not exceed the City of LaSalle's cost for reproduction.
