(June 2022) New request for City of Cheviot, OH Government: Council Member emails 05/01/22 – 06/15/22 (or present day)

Hello City of Cheviot, OH Government (Records Officer),

I’d like to make a public records request for the following information per Ohio Sunshine Laws.

I have tried to narrow and shorten a previous request, per feedback I received from your office. I am now resubmitting it here as a new request:
——————

Please provide all emails sent to and sent from City Councilman B. Smyth’s email address, during the specific time period of 05/01/22 through 06/15/22.

Please provide all emails sent to and sent from President K. Smyth’s email address, during the specific time period of 05/01/22 through 06/15/22.

I’d like to be clear that this request is intentionally not subject or keyword specific. I’d really like to receive “all emails” during the time period indicated.

However, if this time period is still “too extensive” and your office clarifies and confirms as such… then, here is a list of keywords which can be used instead to further narrow the request:

- Pride
- LGBT
- Christian
- gay
- grooming
——————

I do not believe I’m required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely from the email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Please note that I cannot commit to sign any forms or pay any potential fees / associated costs related to any request. If it is not possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost.

** If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under any public records laws, statutes, etc. **

Thank you for your assistance!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

    Good afternoon Kimberlee,

     

    Thank you for confirming receipt of this request back on 7/5. I am following up to see if there was any update to report?

     

    I will plan on checking in again at the end of the month if I don’t hear back before then.

    Good morning,

     

    This email is to confirm that we have received your public records request from 6/28/2022. It is the City’s position that a request for “all emails” is overly broad. We appreciate that you have provided specific terms to narrow your request to public records that include those search terms. The City is able to search emails by the specific terms that you provided.

     

    We will begin compiling this request and provide the response via email when it is complete. Please note that I will be out of the office for two weeks, which may cause a slight delay in processing this request. We will respond as promptly as practicable.

     

    Thank you,

    Kimberlee Erdman Rohr, Esq.
    Law Director
    City of Cheviot
