Hello Ms. Edmonds,

Thank you very much for your message and the letter from Mr. Slover. I apologize for the seemingly insufficient nature of my request and appreciate the apparent disclosure that no documents exist that would satisfy my inquiry. In order to clarify, can you confirm that Adams County has no formal agreement regarding the operation of or provision of services to Adams County Correctional Center? If a revised submission of my request would be necessary to elicit such agreements, I'd be happy to oblige. If you may be aware of other county agencies that may be in possession of such agreements, that would also be useful for future direction of my request.

Thank you very much for your help,
Beryl
