Pursuant to Montana's Constitution, Article II, § 9, I hereby request the following records:
All contracts (and their amendments) and memorandums of understanding entered into by the Montana Department of Corrections for services and activities related to Crossroads Correctional Facility (https://www.cca.com/facilities/crossroads-correctional-facility)
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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.
