I’ve had problems getting public records from South El Monte before. The first time was when I asked to look at their travel expense policies and receipts for these trips. I waited. And waited. And waited. It took nearly four months before I got my documents.
The city staff chalked up the delay in responding to the request as a matter of miscommunication. Perhaps this was true. But now I’m staring at this:
Is this a pattern? I can’t be sure yet. We’ll just have to wait and see how they come together in this request. And how they respond to the next request.
