Today I got this response:
Obviously there is no reason why this lame response couldn’t have been given within the 5 days allowed by law.
The Grove information came from this document dated February 2015: http://www.cityblm.org/home/showdocument?id=12052
Since many more houses have been built at the Grove since 2015 – Tari is relying on old information. It’s not the first time and it certainly won’t be the last. He will do whatever it takes to only spend money downtown.

Laws only matter if you are a citizen – not part of government. The Freedom of Information law states a response must be given in 5 days. An extension can be requested, but it is also due within 5 days.
Since Tari Renner hates The Grove subdivision and doesn’t always use real facts, I saw something in the May 15th meeting documentation I want proof of. Tari even mentioned this during the meeting. One would think if this number was being thrown out, they should easily be able to prove it. Somebody must have a spreadsheet showing all the bills the City has paid and how much they collect in fees and taxes from the residents.
The FOIA was due today. Nothing was sent or received. So much for the law.
Below is the FOIA, I have to send them via a Gmail account because they bounce from my BlnNews account.
To count 5 days, start with May 17th – skip weekends. It was obviously due today. Sure wish we had a local prosecutor!
