From: Zue Myers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All the pet licensing data, including breed, owner address, and animal names for the City of Danville.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Zue Myers

Ms. Meyers - I am forwarding your FOIA request to Mr. Lynwood Barbour, Treasurer for the City of Danville. Sue DeMasi

From: Barbour, Lynwood

Ms. Myers,
The Virginia Freedom of Information Act requires disclosure of public records only to Virginia residents (VA Code ยง2.2-3700, et. seq.). Because you are not a Virginia resident, your request to this office for records is hereby denied.
Lynwood L. Barbour, MGT
Treasurer

From: Zue Myers

Mr. Barbour

I would like to appeal your decision. I am a resident of the City of Danville.

Thank You
Zue Myers

From: Barbour, Lynwood

Ms. Myers,
Once you have provided proper identification and proof of residency we will be happy to discuss how we can best comply with your request.
Our office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Lynwood L. Barbour, MGT
Treasurer

From: Zue Myers

Mr. Barbour

What do you consider proper identification and proof of residency? Would I mail these items to you?

Thank You
Zue Myers

From: Barbour, Lynwood

Ms. Myers,
We accept the same types of proof of identity you would normally present when cashing a check, which is usually a photo ID such as a driver's license.
If the ID also contains your current residence it may also serve as proof of residency. Otherwise for proof of residency we will accept a utility bill, cable bill, phone bill, voter registration card, etc.

The reason I provided our office hours in my last communication was I hoped you would present these documents in person. As I said, once we have verified your residency, we need to discuss how we may best comply with your request. For example the first item listed in your request is breed. We do not maintain breed in our database and therefore cannot provide it.

Lynwood L. Barbour, Treasurer
