Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority

Compliance with Freedom of Information Law Requirements

The Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority operates a bridge between the United States and Canada. The Authority also operates port facilities, an airport, a 25-mile railroad link connecting its port facilities with a national railroad network, and an industrial and warehouse park. Article 6 of the New York State Public Officers Law provides for public access to government records. The statute, generally referred to as the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL), applies to any State agency, public authority and local government entity, with the exception of the Judiciary and the State Legislature. Under FOIL, the Authority is required to make all eligible records available for public inspection or copying within certain time frames. We evaluated the Authority’s compliance with these requirements and found that it was in compliance.
