if you file a Right-to-Know request for that bike lane spending data,
there’s no guarantee you’ll get what you’re after.

The city is working to give citizens more clarity on what records are
available, but it’s a slow process.  A recently hired city archivist has
been combing through old records for two years now in an effort to make
city records more accessible. In the meantime, many citizens requesting
those documents are left in the dark.

This lack of clarity on records availability and retention makes Pittsburgh
unique in Pennsylvania. Other cities give their residents clearer guidance
about what’s available for them to request, and more documents are
available due to better organization. City Archivist Nicholas Hartley said
Pittsburgh doesn’t keep track of its records because it was no one's job to
do so.

myself.” M. Hashimoto
