CARLINVILLE, IL. (ECWd) -
Carlinville FOIA Officer apparently thinks FOIA does not apply to them.
The Illinois Attorney General has sent another letter of inquiry requiring an answer from the City of Carlinville on why they have refused to answer a Freedom of Information Act request from Mr. Woodyard of South Jacksonville, IL.
Woodyard sent his FOIA request to the FOIA Officer, Carla Brockmeier, on April 17, 2017, and she has apparently violated her statutory duty by refusing to provide the requested information.
Now it appears the city will gladly spend more taxpayer funds on their attorney to attempt defending the indefensible - it's "other people's money"... just makes me wonder if it has surpassed $10,000 yet. We will publish all the attorney invoices once they are available.
