  • Public viewership would constitute an invasion of personal privacy;
  • Public access would interfere with ongoing contract awards or union negotiations;
  • Public access would interfere with a current law enforcement investigation or court proceeding;
  • Public access would expose a confidential law enforcement informant;
  • Public access would reveal secret investigative techniques or procedures;
  • The record is an unfinished draft.
