A hearing date has been set for the complaint filed against the City of Nauvoo requesting a Judgement and Injunctive Relief regarding the failure of the City to provide documents as required by the Freedom of Information Act.
Previously the City has claimed these documents are not in their possession, or that they are not required to provide them. They also stated they were waiting for the Attorney General response on our February 28, 2017 request (not named in this complaint). The City has repeatedly taken the position that it needed the Attorney General’s Office to decide its responsibility to provide these documents. We asked the Judge to step in a clear up the issue for the City.
The hearing date has been set for August 9th, 2017 at 10:15am in the Circuit Court for the Ninth Judicial Court of Hancock County, in Carthage.
In a related issue, the Attorney General did render its opinion on July 20th, supporting our contention that the City is responsible to comply, and that the Hotel Motel Board in particular is a City body.
