From:

Mr. Lipton -

I am responding to your Arkansas Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) request dated May 23, 2018. Ark. Code Ann. 25-19-105(a)(1)(A) states:
"Except as otherwise specifically provided by this section or by laws
specifically enacted to provide otherwise, all public records shall be open
to inspection and copying by any citizen of the State of Arkansas during the
regular business hours of the custodian of the records." Based upon your
correspondence and letterhead, it appears that you are not a citizen of the
State of Arkansas. Therefore, I am under no obligation to provide you with
any responsive records pursuant to your request under the Arkansas Freedom
of Information Act.

Thank you for your interest in our County.
