This is my decision on a reconsideration request made by the Board in relation to Order MO-1926-I. The appeal leading to that order dealt with a decision of the Ottawa-Carleton Catholic District School Board (the Board) made pursuant to the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act). The appellant had made the following five-part request for information pertaining to the sale of a school property at a specified address in the city of Ottawa: 1. The Board Report and related memos pertaining to, leading up and following-up to Resolution CW 167-06 on July 2, 2002, regarding the motion on sale of surplus schools. 2. The assessed value of the property at [a specified address] and date of this assessment. 3. The value of the successful bid resulting from the tendering process and date of the bid opening; the amounts and names of the successful bids. 4. The bidder’s written submission with respect to the tendering process. 5. The chronology of actions taken and the dates of these actions which demonstrate that the Board complied with Ontario Regulation 444/98 regarding the "Disposition of Real Property".
The Board denied access to the requested records. The appellant appealed this denial of access. During mediation of the appeal, the Board agreed to disclose some of the records. At the conclusion of mediation, the only remaining issue was the application of section 6(1)(b) (closed meeting) to the records responsive to items 1 and 5 of the appellant’s request.
