FOR THE PAST THREE (3) YEARS I HAVE BEEN SUBMITTING PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST ON CERTAIN ITEMS FOR ONE THE MAINTENCE RECORDS FOR ROLAND RD WHICH WAS SUBMITTED ON JULY OF 2014 AND AS OF THIS DATE STILL NO ANSWER. THE EXCUSE I RECEIVED THEN WAS THAT THE SERVER WAS HIT BY LIGHTING AND THEY WERE WORKING ON IT TO RETRIEVE ANY INFORMATION, WELL STILL WAITING AND NOW IT’S MAY OF 2016. JUST THIS PAST WEEK WHICH WAS MAY 9, 2016 I REQUESTED THE MAINTENCE RECORDS FOR SUNNY HILLS COMMUNITY FOR THE PAST FOUR (4) YEARS STARTING FROM 2011 - 2016 AND AGAIN I GOT THE SAME ANSWER THAT THE SERVER WAS HIT BY LIGHTING AND TO THIS DATE THEY STILL HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM. A COMPUTER TECHNITION SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONTACTED TO SEE WHAT HE COULD HAVE RETRIEVED AND THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD AN EMPLOYEE DOWN LOADING THE INFORMATION THAT WAS ON OTHER HARD DRIVES, OR HAVE GONE THROUGH THE FILES. THE ANSWER I RECEIVED TODAY ABOUT MY REQUEST IS IF I STILL WANTED THIS INFORMATION THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO EVERY EMPLOYEE AND FIND OUT JUST WHAT THEY DID AND WHEN THEY DID IT. IT WOULD COST ME OVER FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS $500.00. THIS INFORMATION SHOULD BE DOWN LOADED BACK INTO THE SYSTEM AND NOT HAVE IT LOST TO THE COUNTY AND TO THE PUBLIC. IS THIS COUNTY JUST GOING TO LOSE ALL THE YEARS PRIOR TO 2015 AND NOT BOTHER TO RETRIEVE IT OR IS IT THEIR WAY SO AS NOT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THEIR RECORDS CHECK BY OTHER AGENCY’S?

IN MY OPINION, THIS IS JUST HOW SOME OF OUR SO-CALLED LEADERS WANT TO KEEP THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTY IN THE DARK BY NOT DOING THEIR JOB CORRECTLY.
