Tallahassee delivers partial records in FBI subpoena request

Tallahassee Democrat by Jeffrey Schweers

June 5, 2018

The city of Tallahassee will turn over 10,000 records to the FBI under its most recent subpoena requesting additional information about business dealings between the city, the Edison restaurant and its founder, lobbyist Adam Corey.

The city delivered some records already and plans to deliver the remaining documents in electronic format in the next week.

“In cooperation with the FBI, the City will provide the remaining records in the next 5-7 business days,” the city said in a news release. “In total, more than 10,000 records will be provided in an electronic format.”

The deadline was today.

The city will continue to update Talgov.com/publicrecords as records are publicly available.

After the Tallahassee Democrat and other news media outlets requested those records Tuesday, the city said it would take several days to “conduct the nceessary review of the estimated 10,000+ items for applicable exemptions to public disclosure.”

City public records custodians said they hoped to have some of those records distributed by Monday.

The latest subpoena was delivered Thursday, almost a year after the FBI dropped two almost identical subpoenas on City Hall requesting reams of documents related to the Tallahassee Community Redevelopment Agency and its dealings with several prominent developers.
