From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act , I hereby request the following records:

Copies of all reports, lists, databases, or individual documents created or updated since Jan. 1, 2009 by the Dallas City Attorney that detail lawsuits brought against the city's police department. This should include any documentation mechanism the City Attorney's office uses to track lawsuits. It should also include any documents that office submits to local, state, or federal agencies listing the number and/or status of lawsuits brought against the police department.

This request should be construed to include documents compiled quarterly, annually, or in other increments as well as documents or databases that contain responsive information over a longer time span.

I request that all fees be waived for this request because I am a journalist -- employed by the Boston Globe and MuckRock -- and intend to use the requested information to educate the public.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Todd Feathers

Heather,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm looking, ideally, for a list of all closed civil rights and tort cases that the department/city either lost in court or settled. I apologize for my original request being a bit broader, but I have found that some cities do not segregate by case type. Please let me know if I can be of further help, and thanks so much.

City seeks citizen feedback on annual operating budget

The City of Dallas is offering citizens the opportunity to voice their opinions about a number of important budget issues, from infrastructure improvements to code compliance by completing a quick survey.

This is a way for citizens to have a voice in the Citys budget development process for next fiscal year, and it takes just seven minutes, said Office of Financial Services Director Jack Ireland. The survey asks residents to weigh in on a number of issues, including how they prioritize services such as street maintenance/repair, code compliance, libraries, parks, and police.

Understanding citizen priorities is an important part of developing the operating budget for the City, Ireland said. Citizens perspective is very important.

Deadline to complete the survey is 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 24. The information will be provided to the City Council for their consideration.
