The City of Red Deer has handed over additional information to an applicant who requested details related to a transit incident four years ago.

The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner ordered the city to provide names of employees that were previously excluded and an email attachment that was not included in the original request under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

The order was issued on Feb. 14. It gave the city 50 days to fulfil the new request.

Charity Dyke, acting director of communications, confirmed the city has complied with the order.

Specific details about the incident were not released for privacy reasons.

On March 29, 2011, an applicant made two requests “for all records pertaining to myself held by Red Deer City Transit … including video surveillance created on Oct. 1, 2010, and Oct. 21, 2010.”

The city responded to the request and the applicant asked for a review of the city’s response and the adequacy of its search.
