(2) their job titles, and

(3) their contact information.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

This request was originally filed in July 2015; it is now Sept 2015. It is requesting public information about what is in essence a professional directory of public employees and their job titles/contact information.

Hard to believe this information is so difficult for a county court to provide to the public in a public record.

From: Marni Scuderi

Please see the attached record you requested. The only change is that Robert St. Cyr is retired from this office and no official replacement in the position of Community Outreach Director has been named. I am happy to answer any questions which you may have regarding Community Outreach in his place to the best of my ability. If you would like these sent to you in paper form, the cost is $3.00. We had mailed the invoice previously but I am assuming from your email that you did not receive it. I apologize for any confusion.

From: Susan A.

Thank you for sending this. I have never seen any of these pages before now. Yes, I would like a certified copy of it. Also, where is this public record? Anywhere? Online? (Is it available to the public, these names and photos and information?)

There are only three names and titles on the last page. It seems incomplete.

Please send an invoice for a certified copy. Thank you.

From: Susan A.

Actually, in thinking more about this matter: There was NO request for anyone's photo or for an organizational chart, and this is not a directory.

What was requested is the public record, if such exists, which is as follows:

1) the names of employees of Collier County Court (the name of the person who is the Community Outreach Clerk, Manager of Court, Director of Court, etc),

(2) their job titles, and

(3) their contact information.
------------

If there is no such public record, please state that.

It seems there is not.

Thank you.

From: Susan A.

After reviewing a number of FL county court sites online tonight, I see what you were trying to do with providing an organizational chart, but yours only shows photos, names and titles. That is not the same as the information I requested, which is contact info, as already explained.

For an organizational chart that shows names, titles, fax numbers, phone numbers and email addresses, see Polk County Court's organizational chart at the link here:

http://www.polkcountyclerk.net/Departments/

(Click on the link in the third sentence.)

That information is readily available online to the public.

I have no idea where you obtained your chart, which has no contact information.

I have to say, after looking at all these court sites in FL, Collier County Court is the worst, in my view.

Collier County Court always has no information, no attempt to be transparent, and no attempt to inform the public of anything or provide customer service. That is Collier County Court. However, it is not like that in every county in Florida, as you can see from the publicly available Polk County Court organization chart with all that contact information.

From: Marni Scuderi

In addition to the records which I have previously sent to you, the only other record that I can locate is a phone list which includes employee names, departments and office phone numbers. This too does not include all information requested as it does not contain job titles. We do not have an existing record which contains all information which you have requested. If you would like to receive this record, it is one page and will be invoiced at $1.00 per page. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

It sounds like you have found a phone directory inside the court, available only to employees, but really my request is concerned with something that is readily available to the public:
--------------
Seeking a certified copy of a the public record which is print out of public record information available online or anywhere, if such information exists online or anywhere, and
is available to the public and available to print out -- as I have never been able to find it:

1) the names of employees of Collier County Court (the name of the person who is the Community Outreach Clerk, Manager of Court, Director of Court, etc),

(2) their job titles, and

(3) their contact information.

It is amazing to me that in over two decades as the elected court clerk of Collier County, Dwight Brock has never considered the public important enough enough to provide any publicly available contact information as other county courts nearby Collier County in FL routinely do provide:

From Key West, FL:
https://gov.propertyinfo.com/fl-monroe/contactclerk.asp

From Miami Dade:
http://www.miamidade.gov/cob/contact-clerk-of-the-board.asp

From: Marni Scuderi

Please see the link below to the Collier Clerk Website. The link and the public records which we have previously offered to you in response to your public records request are the only records we have that are responsive to your public records request. Otherwise, there are no existing records responsive to your clarified public records request.

From: Susan A.

Yes, you did provide two different pieces of non-public information (a flow chart with photos, names and titles not available to the public anywhere, and the offer of an internal phone directory with names and phone numbers), and one piece of publicly available information (the link you sent with mailing addresses but no names other than Dwight Brock) which does not include the information I requested, which was this:

1) the names of employees of Collier County Court (the name of the person who is the Community Outreach Clerk, Manager of Court, Director of Court, etc),

(2) their job titles, and

(3) their contact information.
---------------------------------
It seems to me it should not be so difficult to include the information I requested on the web page link you sent as other county courts in FL do, but I realize the law does not required you to create any new public records to comply with a public records request.

As it stands, you have internal information not available to the public (the flow chart with names and titles, and a phone directory with names and phone numbers), and a web page omitting names and titles.
