By copy of this email I am referring your request to Economic Development and Tax Systems Director Brent Shelton. You should hear from Mr. Shelton within three business days - if you do not, please contact me, so that I may troubleshoot.

I should note that the address for the request is a bit confusing ... "Wichita Public Records Officer" would indicate it was intended for the City of Wichita, but the street address is for the Sedgwick County Courthouse. I have no idea what the "ORA Office" is - we don't have that within Sedgwick County Government. If the intent was to request records from the City of Wichita, then please see http://www.wichita.gov/Pages/default.aspx. Sedgwick County Government will respond as to records it may have that are responsive and subject to "mandatory disclosure" under the Kansas Open Records Act.

Thank you for the prompt response. Perhaps it would help if I described the request a bit more. There were several news stories in the last two months about Wichita being a contender for this headquarters. E.G., http://kmuw.org/post/kansas-senator-moran-pushing-wichita-future-site-new-army-command

I was wondering if the city had made a bid or been in communication with the Army about that.

P.S. I will make sure these requests are properly addressed in the future.

From: Sedgwick County Government

Wichita is the county seat of Sedgwick County. I can only speak for the County organization; and we did not engage in a formal proposal for the headquarters you mention below.

Mr. Kenny:

As Mr. Shelton reported to you, in his response to you yesterday afternoon, Sedgwick County does not have any records responsive to your request. In response to your follow up he reported to you that Sedgwick County Government "did not engage in a formal proposal for the headquarters."

It is possible that the City of Wichita - a distinct local government entity and not part of Sedgwick County Government - may have responsive records. We do not know. The City must receive and respond to its own records requests. You would need to direct a request to the City of Wichita. I suggest that begin by looking at the City's KORA support information at http://www.wichita.gov/CityClerk/KORA/Pages/default.aspx. Information about City of Wichita Economic Development is on the City website at http://www.wichita.gov/Economic/Pages/default.aspx.

There seems to be some mistake. Wichita has been widely reported as a contender city. Ref:

I completely understand that the Senator is separate from your city's government, but I thought that perhaps the city had prepared a bid to line up with the Senator's efforts. Could there be another city office which worked on this?

From: Sedgwick County Government

Good morning, The City’s Office of Economic Development has not received any request nor has prepared any documents, bid, etc. related to this media story.

Your KORA request is now considered fulfilled and closed.
