Mr. Nash,
I am responding to your request as a FOIA Officer for the County. The Virginia Freedom of Information Act provides citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia access to public records in the possession of a public body. See Virginia Code Sections 3700(B) and 3704(A). Are you a Virginia citizen and, if so, what is your address? After you have sent confirmation that you are a Virginia citizen, we will process your request. That would involve determining whether (1) responsive records exist, (2) a charge applies, and (3) the records are exempt. Please note that FOIA only applies to existing records and if no records exist, no new records will be created to respond to your request.
If you are not a Virginia citizen, FOIA does not apply to your request. The County generally does not respond to out-of-state records requests because of the difficulty in collecting payment and because many out-of-state requests involve a large volume of records, excessive search time, or both. By the way, in McBurney v. Young, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Virginia FOIA's limitation on out-of-state requests (i.e., requests from out of state do not have to be honored) is constitutional.

Thank you,
Tara Basile
