(1)  A person may request that any material that is available (or is to be made available) for public inspection by or under this Act be prepared or amended so as to omit or remove any matter that would disclose or discloses the person’s place of living if the person considers that the disclosure would place or places the personal safety of the person or of members of the person’s family at risk.
