From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All reports of incorrect demolition from code officers regarding the July incorrect demolitions.

Fort Worth spokesperson Bill Begley alluded to these reports in his interview with the Star-Telegram (http://www.star-telegram.com/2013/08/21/5099027/fort-worth-halts-demolitions-while.html):

"A code officer reported the incorrect razing to his supervisor, “but that was not communicated up the chain,” Begley said."

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave
