Payne recieves revised 119 form with shorter timeline

Brevard County, Florida, Wednesday, Dec. 2 – In an effort to expedite the process of obtaining public records, I shortened my 119 request to Canaveral Port Authority CEO  Stan Payne. The Brevard Watchdogs’ original 119 request to Canaveral Port Authority sought to

” Inspect, examine and copy any information with regard to Ralph Kennedy’s communication with any Canaveral Port Authority entity or person or any other entity or person.

This information should include, but not be limited to, any notes, memos, letters, emails, recordings and calendar appointment notations by you or any Canaveral Port Authority employee, commissioner or designee.

Today, I submitted a second 119 request to Mr. Payne, with a revised time line. In the spirit of diplomacy, and in hopes of expediting the recovery process , I shortened the request to the past five years (2005-2009). If I feel the need to extend the length and depth of my research, I will submit another request for the years 2000-2004. and continue the process as long as it takes in order to find the reason(s) for Ralph Kennedy’s abrupt resignation, which the CPA has refused to comment on.

Here is a copy of the letter I left for Stan Payne,earlier this afternoon:

This is a request under the Florida Public Records Law, Fla. Stat.Sec. 119.01 et seq.

I wish to inspect, examine and copy any information from the last five years (2005, 2006,2007,2008 and 2009) with regard to Ralph Kennedy’s communication with any Canaveral Port Authority entity or person or any other entity or person.
I trust that you and your attorney can now provide THIS PUBLIC INFORMATION without creating any “charges” to block or slow down the inspection of said documents.  This information should be readily available and its availability for public inspection, should be part of yours and your staffs duty as a civil servants.

This information should include, but not be limited to, any notes, memos, letters, emails, recordings and calendar appointment notations by you or any Canaveral Port Authority employee, commissioner or designee.

If any part of my request is denied, please let me know immediately, pursuant to FS 119.07(2)(a), giving the specific statutory citation for the exemption(s) from disclosure which you assert to justify your failure to make the requested information available.

Also, please state, with particularity, the reasons for your conclusion that the record(s) is (are) exempt.

If you determine that any part of or all of the records which I am requesting are not public records subject to public inspection, please note that FS 119.07(2)(c) provides that you shall not dispose of those records for a period of 30 days after the date on which you receive this letter.

If you determine that some portions of the requested material are exempt, please immediately provide me with the portion you deem non-exempt, pursuant to FS 1l9.07(2)(a).

Understand that I may challenge any assertion that portions of the requested information are exempt, and I’ve noted my delivery of this request on BrevardWatchdogs.com, so the public is aware of this request.

Thank you for your cooperation,
