Dear Mr. Donahue, Pursuant to the state open records law, Ga. Code Ann. Secs. 50-18-70 to 50-18-77 , I write to request access to and a copy of the proposal, meeting notes, minutes, agendas, and any other documents from either public or private meetings, conference calls, lunches, Faxes, Memos, etc. that have any relevance whatsoever to the agreement or potential agreement to place cell towers on 12 school properties in DeKalb County. These notes should include all three of the vendors the school board reportedly considered as well as the proposals they were provided that led their decision to select T-mobile/AT&T. Any documents that provide dollar amounts are of particular importance as well as any internal documents that led to the consideration of cell towers as revenue generators for the county, any consultants utilized for the drawing up of plans and any records from site visits or inspections at local schools, or schools in other counties. Any records submitted to parents, residents, principals or the press should also be included. Any documents related to expert advice that was needed by the board in order to review this option for alternative payments should also be included. . If your agency does not maintain these public records, please let me know who does and include the proper custodian's name and address. I agree to pay any reasonable copying and postage fees of not more than $0.00. If the cost would be greater than this amount, please notify me. Please provide a receipt indicating the charges for each document. As provided by the open records law, I will expect your response within three (3) business days. See Ga. Code Ann. Sec. 50-18-70(f). If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely. Also, please provide all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material. Please be advised that I am prepared to pursue whatever legal remedy necessary to obtain access to the requested records. I would note that willful violation of the open records law can result in the award of reasonable attorney fees and other costs of litigation. See Ga. Code Ann. Sec. 50-18-73(b). Thank you for your assistance. Sincerely,
