Earlier this month John Hammerand was denied the opportunity to participate by phone in a County Board meeting.
Fellow member Ken Koehler asked whether Hammerand had handed in a note from his doctor, according to the Northwest Herald.
Reading that, I wondered if former McHenry County Board Chairwoman had provided “documentation of [her] medical condition.”
So I filed a Freedom of Information Request asking for
“…any medical documentation that has been submitted by those asking to participate in meetings by phone, e.g., each time Tina Hill was in the hospital or in rehab and after Anna May Miller had her vehicle accident.”
I am sure you will find the reply of interest:
“Thank you for your Freedom of Information request below in which you are seeking medical documentation submitted by named County Board members who were asking to participate in meetings by telephone.
“No such records have been provided to the County and therefore, there are no records to produce relative to your request.”
You can read the roll call and the emails exchanged on the subject here. Hill and Miller are among the ten “No” votes.
