Dear Your Right To Know,

Thank you for your message indicating compliance would exceed costs limit citing Section 12.

In this case under Section 16 you are obligated to provide assistance on how to narrow the request so that some information may be provided. We note you have hinted at how this request may be narrowed. Therefore based upon your helpful response we shall treat this as a request for clarification and rephrase our request to now state:

Without exceeding cost limit imposed under S12, please kindly name your "40 services" so that we can make a determination of which ones we would like to check how many active volunteers there are.

Yours sincerely,
