The Mystery of the FOIA Request Results

Leave a comment

As I have been a borrower of the Mystery of the Missing Sock From the Laundry storyline from time to time (clothing, such as socks, have been reported to somehow float into the outer portion of a washing machine and that without such awareness, the disappearance of a sock can be quite vexing!), and for all that I will forever champion and cheer when it comes to being a practitioner of the scientific art of freedom of information…

What happens to the results of fulfilled FOIA requests?  Does it disappear like a sock during the washing cycle?

Think about it.  An agency fulfills a request and surrenders said documentation to the requestor.  What does the requestor do with it?  What does the government agency do with it?  How much documentation is being kept hidden by the citizens?  Private organizations?  News organizations?  UGH!

Now there’s an app that’ll never happen!*  Something that aggregates all public documentation contributions to the Internet from a government entity…?  Even if the content has been scanned and then posted, searchability of such documents is/can be severely hampered.

In closing, I reference back to my recent vent about Kitching’s Kvetching and that if there was a contest to create an app for all board meeting minutes state-wide (for example), it would fail not because an app designer didn’t possess the necessary coding skills…

They would have to first bring about state-wide basic standards for all municipalities to follow when posting materials to the Internet.

Of course, they’d also have to figure out how to address a significant percentage of municipalities having no official web presence whatsoever…

Oy vey!

*  Apparently, Motorola and MacArthur have teamed up to motivate app developers to create the best app that brings together the City of Chicago and the concept of “open government” similar to a couple of other major metro areas.

Ditching the “Victim=Kitching” Demonstration – No Minutes App for Alsip Any Time Soon

Leave a comment

The Mayor of Alsip was recently held up to (slight) public scrutiny over what modifications (if any) need to be made to the current Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) laws here in Illinois.

Mayor Patrick Kitching comes across in this Chicago Tribune article “Clout St: Illinois open records laws under scrutiny” as a victim of a vicious political assault via the prescribed FOIA request process and the proposed “Kitching Bill” would curb such outrageous trends in the State of Illinois by using words such as “vexatious” to vilify a citizen if they breach the previously prescribed count.

According to the article, it was on Mayor Kitching’s watch that former Alsip Police Chief chose to defy the 50 requests per day limit by submitting a 90 Request Protest (90 FOIA requests in one day).  The topic of the requests?  Municipal codes and board meeting minutes.  The timing?  Apparently during election season because the former police chief is now Trustee Richard Dalzell (a trend for south/southwest suburb police chiefs to hop on over to the board side of life?) and at first glance, the municipal code book and board meeting minutes do seem to be quite readily available online.

However, the surface of a web page may not reflect other issues that might be present due to the coding behind the page presentation.  In fact, the current structure wrecks havoc on popular search engine indexes and yes, prevents the ability to create an effective app for Alsip board meeting minutes (assuming someone out there would want to take on such a task)…let alone all of the other issues attached with reviewing the Alsip Municipal Code Collection and their Board Meeting minutes, including the absence of a search portal on the website, let alone the inability to search otherwise-searchable Adobde .pdf files without downloading a piece of the collection if not the entire collection itself.

With codifying companies defying FOIA fee boundaries by charging sometimes hundreds of dollars for a digital copy of a municipal code book already in digital format online – in some cases, the document si separated by a proprietary template that inhibits ability to manipulate the data whatsoever, unless you were to copy/paste each individual page into a word processing software – almost as if there was a glass case surrounding the document with an alarm system attached should anyone attempt to touch the book in its entirely – let alone have the ability to thumb through at will – and for free (that’s what libraries are for) – with codifying companies creating decoding software for sale to provide a unique search feature that shouldn’t need to be installed into the usage of the document to begin with.

While other municipalities are forced to comply with pre-established FOIA fees in which the first 50 pages are free, the cost of photocopying a municipal code book is less than $10.00, $20.00 at best for machine wear and tear.  This demonstration sets forth demonstration as to why the Village of Alsip website under the Kitching administration is not something other municipalities should be modeling their practices after…and here’s why.

Misleading Information Demonstration
Municipal Code Book Section

 

In this screen snapshot taken Saturday, June 25, 2011, there are three misleading statements contained within the content:

1.  On further review at the Municode Corporation website, October 2010 was the last time the municipal code book was updated online.  The presence of 2005 (unless some sort of internal codification process that assigns numbers that tend to reflect a year is being stated) makes this a quick loss of significant credibility in terms of performing a search on the website, the added detraction of 8 months having passed since the last update, the string “online librarys” (misspelled) serves no anchor purpose other than acting as keywords in which Municode Corporation does not present a municipal code book as a “library,” because it’s not.  It’s a book of ordinances.  It’s one book of laws.

2.  The absence of a space between the “ordinance” and “municode.com” creates a unique string that produces the following results in Google:

Note the Google algorithm attempting to place a space somewhere its data suggests there to be one, which in this circumstance would be the theoretically accurate assumption from an end-users perspective.  Google apparently doesn’t even register the presence of this string despite absence of a “noindex-nofollow” instruction.  What if a user thought it was a company name and that there was no evidence of such a company as Ordinacemunicode?

3.  What isn’t readily noticeable is the actual linking schematics, especially in context with the instructions set forth to “click on the graphic image.” In this link (the underline is not noticeable until after someone mouses over the text), the link leads to product id 14055.  Same as this link to the word “librarys.”

 

But look what happens when a user mouses over the word “online” – an entirely different hyperlink is offered:

As to what link is attached to the graphic referenced in the statement “click on the graphic image to view”?

Turns out that both links lead in the direction of the Alsip municipal code book, but the 14055 coding lands a visitor directly onto the start of the municipal code book structure dedicated to Alsip.  The other code, 10199, lands a visitor onto a miniature switchboard page that offers links to the municipal code book itself, a mobile version, and a screen-wide bar offering to sell a copy of the book.  Perhaps for some form of traffic tracking purposes, but the links themselves aren’t even obvious links set off my either color and/or underline, let alone the fuzziness of italics in a hyperlink circumstance.

Ultimately, these two variances in links provide reason to doubt which, if any, will lead to the municipal code book for Alsip, Illinois as prescribed in the contract between Municode Corporation and the Village of Alsip, as well as producing questions such why the one word “online” was intentionally separated out and hyperlinked for starters.

Misleading Information Demonstration
Board Meeting Minutes Section

At first glance at the board meeting minutes page of the Village of Alsip website, there is room for immediate doubt in the sincerity of Kitching being the “victim” when a visitor can see the following before ever scrolling downward:

If a user does not scroll down, the hyperlinks in the upper right corner suggest a 4 year gap in minutes available for download.  No click track can trace the number of people who have adopted such a perception and such a perception gap can be eliminated by either deleting the hyperlink list entirely and telling visitors to scroll…or they can build out the menu to include 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Now, the whole scrolling part to the single page listing what appears at first glance to be a hyperlinked list of all board meeting minutes available in .pdf format.

Before I get into aggregation connection failures in the file naming structure itself, the clumsy nature of the CSS template being used to house the data presents to an end-user in itself is trouble.  From a fixed two-column structure all the way to the content being centered in the columns its in the headers that keyword suggest the presence of an agenda or two mixed in with the minutes.

On the surface, each years header implies that there are both agendas and minutes contained in the collection.  However, a review of the entire collection uses terms such as “special,” “Wednesday” and also a few committees, such as the appropriations committee to where a visitor now has to wonder, are both documents contained within the same file?  Typically, an agenda is posted prior to a meeting (and sometimes even passed around to audience members) and minutes are a separate document entirely.  And sure enough, there are agendas mixed in with minutes and the date means nothing other than a clicker being delivered either an agenda or minutes.

Now lets go towards the aggregation connection failures direction and the whole linking schematic used for this particular collection.  As I mentioned, it takes a moment or two before one begins to question the content in any manner, but what becomes really curious is their physical file naming strategy.

When a list of all hyperlinks in this page is reviewed (there are quite a few add-ons that will perform this task), it can be seen that at least directory-wise, there is a folder designation for “agenda” and “minutes”:

That consistency is helpful to anyone seeking to aggregate and/or distribute the public documentation from a programming side, and there is even a directory for Committee Meeting Minutes, but it also does zero for the end-user reading only the surface of the page.

Using a find and replace method, an additional directory becomes noticeable that grows from the Committee directory:

See the number 2007 repeated twice?  The first one represents a separate directory, suggesting that all following files will be from the year 2007 as the page suggests on the surface.  This split in naming habit could have a work-around…if it stayed consistent, which it doesn’t:

Oddly enough, the folder by year structure appears to have been implemented in 2007 and yet all other Committee Meeting Minutes were apparently left in their original codified state dating from 2006 back.

Their whole naming system contains a host of problems and issues, as this one sample reflects in which all percent signs were replaced by spaces and then columns were created to contain the separate file name string:

It’s a lot worse than just this for those itching to pull together reliable means and methods to distribute board meeting minutes online.  Not only is the file naming scattered and disconnected, but there are also a series of duplicate links present from mousing over the surface to where it typically takes manual assignment to each string and in the board meeting minutes of 2007, there are multiple entries where the month is separately hyperlinked to the same document the rest of the date is hyperlinked to.

Lastly, the most skewed portion of this particular page is the surface statement that board meeting minutes are available for download for the years of 2004.

A glance at the cascading style sheet attached to the site shows the following data pertaining to the color-coding of hyperlinks throughout the entire site:

To those who are unfamiliar with the color coding scheme for web pages, color 000066 is a dark navy blue and color CC0000 is redish-orange.  Although the redish-orange shading for when someone is “hovering” over a link, it is the use of one of the darkest colors on the color palate to signal there is a hyperlink attached to text.

Now look at this snapshot of the 2004 Board Meeting Minute Collection in which the text circled in red is text with the 000066 color:

The big deal about this lies not only in a poor hyperlink color schematic – especially with the blue watermarks as the backdrop to the text…

Not one of the following board meeting minutes and/or agendas as listed on their website are available for download from their site:

24 Board Meeting Minutes and 24 Committee Meeting Minutes listed as available for download, are not available per site instructions, which makes this particular portion of the Village of Alsip Board Meeting Minutes Collection misleading and entirely false at the time of this site profile report.

That’s 48 clear no-shows and without a manual review of every single document posted online.

Despite Trustee Dalzell clearly crossing a line in protest according to the news article, it is clear that Mayor Kitching is clearly no FOIA hawk in favor of the citizen…or even in favor of government…especially when the State has put a “data portal” online at http://data.illinois.gov that hosts the following statement:

“…a clearinghouse of various data sets in a standard format that is readable by virtually all computer systems.”

Hmmm…not sure such a lofty and honorable objective can be achieved….especially when municipalities such as Alsip implement such obscure file naming habits for public documentation while claiming FOIA laws are costing municipalities too much in time, resources and money, let alone the 48 board meeting minutes stated as “present and accounted for” while beneath the surface there is nothing but “absent and unknown location of documents.

Perhaps developers can succeed in developing applications that aggregate this kind of data more effectively, especially to those who seek to stay connected to the movement of issues, legislation, etc., but unless/until municipalities are motivated to cease broadcasting such uncooperative online-related programming such as with the Alsip demonstration (although I have seen far worse), those already online aren’t going to jump at the chance to change their websites to comply and those who have no online presence will still have no central repository to email such documentation to…

An Act of Acrimonious Denial Of Acronym Accountability

Leave a comment

A few years back, I audited 10 years of board meeting minutes for a municipality here in Illinois and posted the results to the Internet in a small variety of formats (blogs tended to address most of my demonstrative needs).

No one asked me to do it and quite frankly, such a direction was not always met with welcome and excitement by one and all.  It was one of those things that the more meeting minutes I reviewed, the more I needed to see just how long a variety of patterns were of printed practice and protocol when it came to this particular collection of public records.  What can I say…I had some time on my hands and it really was but a few other rare instances I expected to encounter…rather than less than 30% of all municipal code books are readily locatable in an online format.

I don’t believe local governments have never experienced truly vexatious moments in connection with the FOIA request process.  Even I believe in boundaries, but while authorities (and others) are still apparently praying for relief from the “political enemies” of local governments…what of the prayers for relief from such blanket designation being codified and conversed about at cocktail parties and coffee houses?

There are individuals who continue to fail to achieve the basic job descriptions assigned a municipal Clerk and what is more acrimonious of an act against a citizen base than codifying public documentation reports containing a series of acronyms without any credible anchor to the legal entity being referenced in the report?

In simple summary, the level of acronym use I found in those board meeting minutes were so extreme in variance, although FOIA requests still are necessary to perform a simple act of anchoring what entity was being recorded in the municipalities public record books in connection to what issue, restoring integrity to a past set of public documents without first addressing the behaviors that continue to publish them as-is seemed like a foolish response to the 100% denial of all of my own personal FOIA requests a few years ago.

For example, one can certainly try to capture in one single FOIA request for a list of all legal entities cited and registered in the board meeting minutes to be matched with their proper legal identities, but we’re talking about the power to brand a citizen vexatious in connection with a FOIA request…

…so why hasn’t the Village Clerk demanded such acronym anchoring to begin with?  In fact, with each set of meeting minutes presented by the Village Clerk, even the board members passed unanimous consensus the minutes be accepted as official record of a now-past meeting.

The hypocrisy here has a complex, and yet distinct personality in political terms, and with members of the news media still being repetitively documented as the Villains of the Modern American Way and clear “political enemies” worthy of such hard-core shut-downs of documents that to anyone of Hero stature can somehow access with a phone call or an email…let alone a visit to a website designed for document download… continues to defy the extraordinary measures ordinary people are going to have to carry if we are to be successful at lifting the credibility and reputation of the State in the eyes of the residents, the business community, and yes, even the political community.

Therefore, I thought it best to revive one particular demonstration I had used a few years back in an effort to point out that since acronyms were not clearly anchored in board meeting minutes, how can it be classified as an act of an Enemy of local government in America when the full identity of a business, not-for-profit, or even a political organization is a crucial part of this public documentation collection?

I had made the point of matter that it was nearly impossible to productively engage in community matters as a citizen when it was nearly impossible to utilize the public documentation collection at the local library, due to it being severely out of date and in paper format only…and that my own FOIA request for a copy of the municipal code book was denied on the grounds of “unduly burdensome.”  Had the municipality complied with my request to visually see a copy of the book while at Village Hall (repeatedly), I wouldn’t have even thought of FOIA requesting the document, but it seemed like a peaceful – and economical – way to document an already verbalized denial and protest cycle that eventually involved the Public Access Counselors office.

The bottom line about the acronyms isn’t about the municipal code book so much as the board meeting minutes that could significantly reduce the need for FOIA requests – including that of the media – while removing one of the other methods used to deny one of my FOIA requests for a job description for a job title I found posted on the website that wasn’t located anywhere in the municipal code book.  The lawyer got paid to tell me that there was no such job title in the Village, which I already had suspected but had no other way to confirm other than that of a FOIA request due to the repeated rejection of verbal answers in the past.

If I had submitted the list of acronyms I had painstakingly extracted from the documents and made the FOIA request for the legal entity associated with the acronym as in connection with the board meeting minutes I found it in, it would have also probably been classified as “unduly burdensome”…especially since there was repeated appearance of inconsistent use of an acronym related to an identity cited in the records.

My own rawness grown from the research stems from the awareness of wide-spread negligence leading to such a failure grade when it comes to the ability to not only test the integrity of public documentation, but also enforce even the most basic of codification principles in connection with the job description of the Village Clerk.  He is the last person to review the minutes and the first to issue citation that such a document is ready for board approval.  Proper identification of legal entities in board meeting minutes is in the can of everyday knowledge of those responsible for generating such documents and if the collection I audited had come under the header of “business” rather than that of government, government would be likely to first demand a list similar to what I chose not to request from government.

Businesses lose credit and credibility when they serve a municipality well.  The losses many companies endure on the front end of the bidding process can frequently be made up on the back-end with more non-government work, let alone the companies that serve only government entities.  Collaboration between jurisdictions is becoming more and more of a primary need rather than a grudging nod and a grunt in passing by and the business community is in need of cooperation from the consumers.  Housing issues will continue to blind-side local communities in what can feel like a blink of an eye.  Knowing what businesses are engaging the time, attention, resources and reliance of our local governments is vital on a variety of levels, but I remain under the belief that it is a wide-spread fear of facing the evidence our past record-keeping practices reflects, especially when it comes to public board meeting minutes…and not of the fault or flaw of the citizens in Illinois.

This Village should have gotten it right the first time around by stating clearly who IML, SSMMA, IDNR, IDOT, etc. were…every time the Village claims their entities came up in public conversation during a board meeting…

Beginning at least a decade ago.

And since the acronym practice shows up even before 2000, it remains my mathematical suspicion this municipality would not logistically be able to quickly match up the acronyms in the set of board meeting minutes I used, cite the match up and then certifying such a connection with certainty, as I believe my own effort to play match-up demonstrates.

As I said before the last time I posted this list, if one of my match-ups is in error and incorrect, it is not my fault or flaw for failing to FOIA request this particular list before publication.  Talk to the Village Clerk and the board members that approved the documents as “ready” for at least limited public release to the local library.

In the meantime, here are my own answers to the identity/acronym match-up quiz every reviewer of said documents would have to take (in some form) if they wanted more information about the recorded interaction/transaction between said entity and the Village.  There are other anomalies that are brought forth in this list, including the inter-mixing of letters and numbers within company names (using the number in some cases while spelling out the word in other examples)…the number of times certain companies show up…

Columns are divided into frequency of appearance in the board meeting minute collection, an acronym when (and if) applicable, and the appearance of what looks to be the identity of an entity.
