Hello Mr. Fidler,

I'd like to revisit this request as I'd like to confirm that the City does not have any agreements or invoices related to the construction and/or provision of utilities, such as water or sewage, to the Prairie Correctional Facility.

Thanks for your help,
Beryl

From: Roman Fidler

Good afternoon:

Your question today is different from in the past. We do not have any current agreements with CCA. Anything in reference to construction by CCA, would have been building permits that go back to probably 1997 of 1998. All the information is in the basement and would take substantial time to find, pull out, copy and forward to you. The only current invoices are the monthly billing for utilities. What are you looking for as far as agreements and how far back? Our Lookup fees are $25.00 flat fee, plus $15.00 per hr. Coping costs and postage.

Thank you.

Roman A. Fidler, Clerk/Treasurer
