To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
A list of waived parking tickets processed between June 1, 2010 and the date when this request is processed, including the license plate on the citation, the name of the individual cited, and the name of the official who waived the ticket, and any documentation as to why these tickets were waived.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Please see the attached response to your recent request for information under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act.

Mr. Musgrave – Thank you for your prompt attention to the issue surrounding the unpaid fee from a previous request for information under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. However, as I stated in my original letter: “pursuant to Virginia Code Section 2.2-3704.A, the Virginia Freedom of Information Act is only open to “citizens of the Commonwealth, representatives of newspapers and magazines with circulation in the Commonwealth, and representatives of radio and television stations broadcasting in or into the Commonwealth.” Accordingly, it does not appear from the original request that this information is available to MuckRock through the Virginia Freedom of Information Act and therefore, no further processing will be completed.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
