Pursuant to the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) KSA §§ 45-215 through 45-250, I am requesting copies of public records related to the sign code, Sec 27-720, et. seq. Specifically, I am requesting:
1. Printed and/or electronic reports, letters (including email), and records relating to any denial of a sign permit from July 2018 to present, under the permitting scheme in Sec. 27-723;
2. The form(s) required to be submitted to become a “licensed” sign hanger.
3. Printed and/or electronic guidelines, handbooks, regulations, and other forms or documents the Unified Government currently uses to issue a license to become a “sign hanger”.
Please send these records to me by email at Sam.MacRoberts@KansasJusticeInstitute.org or by mail to the address in the signature block.
If there are any fees for copying these records, please inform me of the cost in advance. However, I request that you waive costs. Kansas Justice Institute is a 501(c)(3) public interest organization and we are seeking this information in the public interest.
If this request is denied, in whole or in part, please describe any materials for which exemption from the KORA is asserted, with reference to the specific exemption, and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
