to either or both the town's Risk Manager and/or me, the City Solicitor. This is not to stonewall you
or otherwise deny you access to information you miglt request. I will be available, md, hopefully,
able to assist you in providing responses to your requests- I am aware that there are a couple requests

Mr. Ayres,II[

I received yoru letter dated March 19, 2010. In it you refene, rce a couple requests for information that I
have requested but have not yet received answers. You strated that you would inquire as to those mattrers
and respond to me. It has been over five weeks and I have yet to receive anything from you or anyone

I also want to know what the Town of Ocean Crty

has done since October 3,2010 to make sure that
whathappenedto my husband neverhappens to myone else. And lastly, is Joanne Brubage still
employed by the Town of Ocean City 911 Dispatch Center?

As I told the Mayor dwing otrFebnrary 27 meeting,I will not rest, or go away, wd I receive the
dnswersl to these questions. If I can't get the affrwers on my orvn, I have no problem f4king my story to
the residents of Ocean City and anyone else willing to list€Nr. It will then be up to them to
decide whether or not the Toum of Ocean City 911 Disparch and Fire and EMS are being
managed proprly by the current Mayor and Town Council. If not, they will have the upcoming election
to make sure that their voices are heard-

I would appreciate a response to my questions no later than lvlay 14,2010. Thank you.

Jackie Rehmann
