The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.
Attention: Beryl Lipton
This department received a facsimile request today from MuckRock News requesting contracts and invoices related to the use of communication services at our county jail. Our department is very small and our jail can only house a maximum of 25 inmates. This department currently does not have kiosks or mobile tablet services. In order to attempt to obtain the information requested we will not be able to comply with this request until approximately June 15, 2018 (due to vacation and work issues) which is beyond the 5 business days. This department will contact you by that date to advise of any fees associated with your request.

To Whom It May Concern:
I'm following up on the following Illinois Freedom of Information Act. request, copied below, and originally submitted on May 24, 2018. You had previously indicated that it would be completed on June 15, 2018. I wanted to check on the status of my request, and to see if there was a new estimated completion date.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
I apologize in that we still have not gotten your request filled. As I said we are a very small agency and we need to first see to law enforcement duties. I believe that we should have copies of the contracts and commission reports (may not have prior to December 2015 as that was when I came into this position) but will have a record of the monthly payments received January 2015 to November 2015. We do not yet have the completed signed contract for video visitation with ENCARTELE as it is not up and running yet or installed. These copies will be mailed to you at your listed address and the fee for mailing and copies will be $20.00 payable to the Carroll County Sheriff's Department.
