    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,
    This request remains in position 6. Our IT department is experiencing server issues that are preventing me from completing email searches but they anticipate having the issue fixed this week or next. At that time I will go to the building and work on these requests, as I am unable to do them from home due to network security protocols. Thank you for your patience.
    Best,

    Good afternoon Terry,

     

    We’ve received a new public records request via our website www.sunshinerequest.com for information that may be available in your office.

     

    Please confirm receipt to let us know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. We will plan on following up again around that time. We will note on our site the statement you recently gave about how “If any of the records are located in city hall, rather than electronically, they will not be found until city employees return to city hall to work.”

     

    Here are the details of the request:
