I am responding to your request as a FOIA Officer for the County. I wanted to let you know that I have had trouble locating any responsive information regarding your request made, but am continuing to reach out the appropriate departments to verify I have the correct information. However, 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 continue to research your request. That would involve determining whether (1) responsive records exist, (2) a charge applies, and (3) the records are exempt.
