The Division of Transportation does not have any documents responsive to your request.

If this is not your request, please let me know.

  1. Is this the 2nd FOIA request about the subject, or the first?

    The FOIA request needs to be re-worded to clarify what’s being asked for is any work done for or regarding the Department of Transportation, IRREGARDLESS of Mr. Serafini’s PHYSICAL location at the time the work was being performed.

    The response received to the FOIA indicates the DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (not the entire county) has no records to indicate Mr. Serafini was physically at the Department of Transportation during the month of February.

    (What month was the tour that Mr. Serafini received at the Department of Transportation?).

    For some reason there is not a main FOIA contact at the county, rather, a FOIA contact for each department.

    So, send the FOIA request to HR & Administration.

    Specify in the FOIA request, the FOIA request is not limited to Department of Transportation records, but ALL COUNTY RECORDS, and what is being requested is Mr. Serafini’s work INVOLVING the Department of Transportation.

    Ask that any payroll records be included in the FOIA response, that indicates any work that Mr. Serafini performed involving or charged to the Department of Transportation.

    Who is the contact at the County that provided that FOIA response?

    Be sure to specific an emailed response is desired, and that no paper is desired.

  2. To those of you who work in the public sector or hold public office:

    Want to know why people in the private sector do not like or have respect for you?

    Jeff Young just showed you why.

    Jeff knows exactly what the taxpayer is asking for but wants to be a smart ass and make the taxpayer’s life difficult!

  3. Ollie collects $48,000 plus pension and benefits for posting nonsense on Facebook! Unbelievable!

  4. Jim?

    Its a Chicago saying.

    We all know that it is not a word and means nothing, but people still stubbornly hang on to their old cutoms.

  5. The FOIA request needs to be re-worded to clarify what’s being asked for is any work done for or regarding the Department of Transportation, REGARDLESS of Mr. Serafini’s PHYSICAL location at the time the work was being performed.
