The City has reviewed your request and has determined that the records requested are exempt from disclosure for the following reasons: Per the law in Tennessee at T.C.A. 10-7-503(a)(2)(A), municipal records will "be open for personal inspection by any citizen of this state...." [Emphasis added]. It appears from your contact information that you are not a Tennessee resident therefore this request is denied due to lack of residency.
This completes your public records request with the City of Memphis

Sincerely,

Public Records Office
City of Memphis
