The municipality shall provide the information to the applicant upon request or by publication.
A request for information within the meaning of Act No. 106/1999 Coll., on free access to information, may be made orally or in writing.
In writing to Vestec Municipality, Vestecká 3, 252 50 Vestec
By phone: 724 090 907
A written request for information is also a request made by e-mail.
Upon oral request, the municipality will provide oral information on simple matters. However, an oral request cannot be the basis for a decision in an administrative procedure.
If information is not provided to the applicant in response to a verbal request, or if the applicant does not consider it sufficient, the request must be made in writing.
The written request must clearly show:
(a) to whom it is addressed
(b) that the applicant seeks the provision of information within the meaning of this Act
(c) in the case of natural persons, who submits it (name, surname, date of birth, address of permanent residence or, if not registered as a permanent resident, residential address and address for service if different from the address of permanent residence or residential address)
(d) for legal persons, the name, identification number, registered office address and address for service, if different from the registered office address
(e) delivery address means also an electronic address.
If the application does not contain the above-mentioned requirements, it is not an application within the meaning of this Act.
If the lack of information about the applicant hinders the procedure for processing requests for information under this Act, the municipal authority shall invite the applicant within 7 calendar days of the submission of the request to complete the request and shall warn him that if he fails to comply with this invitation within 30 days of the date of delivery of the invitation, the request shall be abandoned.
(a) be intelligible
(b) it must be clear what information is requested
(c) it must not be phrased too broadly.
If the application is unclear, it is not clear what information is requested or is formulated in too general a manner, the applicant shall be invited to clarify the application within 7 days of the submission of the application. If the applicant fails to specify the application within 30 days of the date of receipt of the invitation, the decision shall be taken to reject the application.
If the information requested is not relevant to its remit, it shall defer the request and communicate this reasoned fact to the applicant within 7 days of receipt of the request.
The municipal authority shall provide the requested information within 15 days from the receipt of the request or from the date of its completion. A record shall be kept of the procedure for providing the information.
The deadline for providing information may be extended by the municipality for serious reasons, but not more than 10 days. Serious reasons are:
- locating and collecting the requested information in other offices that are separate from the office handling the request
- locating and collecting the voluminous amount of separate and distinct information required in a single application
- consultation with another obliged entity or between two or more components of an obliged entity
The applicant must always be demonstrably informed of the extension of the time limit and the reasons for it in good time before the expiry of the time limit for providing the information.
If the municipality does not grant the application, even in part, it shall issue a decision rejecting the application or rejecting part of the application, except where the application is deferred, within the time limit for dealing with applications.
If the request is not granted on the grounds of the protection of trade secrets or the protection of the rights of third parties to the subject matter of the copyright, the reasons for the decision must state who exercises the right to the trade secret or who exercises the property rights to the subject matter of the copyright, if that person is known to the municipality.
If the request for information is aimed at the provision of published information, the municipality may, as soon as possible, but no later than within 7 days, instead of providing the information, communicate to the applicant the data enabling the applicant to locate and obtain the published information. If the applicant insists on the direct provision of the published information, the municipality shall provide it.
On the basis of a statement of the Ministry of the Interior: a municipality is entitled to request reimbursement of costs under the InfZ regime even if one applicant submits several requests for information, none of which alone meet the conditions of an exceptionally extensive search for information, but in their totality constitute such a case. Therefore, for the purposes of reimbursement, such 'split' requests can be considered as one request and reimbursement can be applied collectively. Costs may also be claimed for oral requests for information.
