To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Kentucky Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Mr. Gross,

I am in receipt of your open records request dated January 6, 2021 and received in my office via email on January 6, 2021. Pursuant to KRS 61.870 - 61.884 I am responding to your request within three (3) business days.

In your request, you asked for; I am seeking copies of any and all plans to provide COVID-19 vaccines to staff, the general population, and ICE detainees at Boone County Jail. I am also seeking copies of all correspondence between the Boone County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), regarding the coronavirus vaccine plan at the facility.

I am compelled to deny your request because the Boone County Sheriff's Office is not the operational Office of the Boone County Jail. In Kentucky, the people elect or reelect a jailer every four (4) years. The elected position of jailer is separate from the Boone County Sheriff, Michael A. Helmig. Furthermore, the Boone County Sheriff's Office has not corresponded with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding the Coronavirus Vaccine plan as it pertains to the Boone County Jail.

Please refer your request to Boone County Jailer, Jason Maydak at jmaydak@boonecountyky.org<mailto:jmaydak@boonecountyky.org> or submit your request by mail to 3020 Conrad Lane, Burlington, Kentucky 41005.

Please contact me directly should you have any questions about this response.
