Clark Co., IL. (ECWd) -
We have received a tip from someone in another part of the state that Charity Murphy has failed to respond to a Freedom Of Information Act request.
They are wanting to file a lawsuit to force disclosure of whatever financial information they had requested.
I am finding it very difficult to say anything other than "sue them" since I know FOIA violations are running rampant within Charity Murphy's office - and have been for some time.
The problem is that the taxpayers end up footing the bill for the Park District Director's failure to do her statutorily mandated and non-discretionary duty - and the majority of the board are too spineless to do anything about it (they know who they are).
On Thursday, June 04, 2015 @ 3:06 PM, someone sent a FOIA request to Charity Murphy at her Park District's email address.
Since June 4 was a business day and it was received prior to the close of business, June 5 is day one of the five business day time frame to respond.
Today is June 16 - eight days after the request was sent and received.
Charity Murphy has once again placed the Park District in jeopardy of another lawsuit due to her own (in)actions.
I will publish the original FOIA request after I receive permission from the sender that it is OK to publish - or when I get my own copy thru FOIA.
