Cynthia Fernandez filed this request with the Columbus City Clerk of Columbus, OH.

It is a clone of this request.

Est. Completion None


From: Cynthia Fernandez

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Ohio Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all available dog licensing and registration data for animals within your jurisdiction.

Please include all available segregable data, including but not limited to:

• the type of animal
• the breed of the pet
• the pet's date of birth
• the pet's name
• the owner's address or applicable zip code
• any other available notes

Also, I am requesting that the data be sent in Excel format.

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

I'm following up on a FOIA request I made on the 7th of this month. Please let me know if you have any questions.


From: Blevins, Angie N.

Good morning Ms. Fernandez,

I did not receive the previous email requests from you dated in July and early August. The email inquiry below dated August 22, 2017 is the first one I have received.

Under Ohio Public Records Law, each department or office of the City of Columbus is responsible for maintaining its own records and responding to public records requests. As the City Clerk for the City of Columbus, I coordinate public records requests on behalf of the Members of Council for records that are maintained within their offices. The City Council office does not maintain the type of records that are contained within your public records request.

To the best of my knowledge, the best resource for those records would be the Franklin County Auditor’s office, rather than an entity within the City of Columbus. A link to the Franklin County Auditor’s office is as follows:
