Dear Indio City Clerk,
Pursuant to the California's Sunshine Amendment (Cal. Const. Art. I, § 3(b)), I hereby request the following records, which I understand to be in possession of agencies within your city that have, in any way, contracted or otherwise hired Helix Environmental:
Any and all documents, including but not limited to invoices and contracts that mention, refer to and/or discuss Sarichia Cacciatore, otherwise known as Seekey Cacciatore, a current or former employee of Helix Environmental. Please include but not limit this request to the following search terms: “Sarichia Cacciatore”, “Seekey Cacciatore,” “Seekey,” “email@example.com,” “firstname.lastname@example.org,” and “email@example.com.”
2) Any and all communication between any city employee of an Indio agency that has contracted with or currently contracts with (or in any way hires) Helix Environmental and Sarichia Cacciatore.
This request is narrow by nature, as it seeks public records pertaining to only one individual at one company that does business with the city. It doesn’t include a time frame, and I ask that you please search your records as far back in time as they exist.
Please provide these documents as they are compiled.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of our work at inewsource, a nonprofit investigative journalism center. I am a member of the press, and this request is not being made for commercial usage.
I ask that you please provide the records in their original, electronic format.
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 time and commitment to an open and transparent government process. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on March 2, 2015. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thank you for your help.
The City Finance Department and the city’s Water Authority state there are no records of the information you seek.
Thank you for your interest.
Cynthia Hernandez, City Clerk
City of Indio
