Pursuant to the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, I hereby request the following documents:

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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.

Hello Joy,

Another request for info I do not have. LJ

From: Joy Ansley

Dear Sir: I need clarification on this request. Are you asking for
documentation on medical care that the County had to pay for County inmates,
outside of what's normally provided by CCA? Or are you asking for
documentation of payments made to CCA for care of County inmates? Please
let me know as soon as possible. Thank you!

Hello Joy,

Another request for info I do not have. LJ

From: Beryl Lipton

Hello Ms. Ansley,

I apologize for the delay. I would be interested in both sets of information.

• invoices related to payments made to CCA for care of County inmates

• invoices/bills for care the County had to pay for County inmates

Please let me know if further clarification is needed!

Thank you!
Beryl
