For reasons only the DeKalb Library director and their attorney know a FOIA request by the Daily Chronicle for the letter of intent to purchase DeKalb Clinic property was denied. They first denied my request for the same letter but then a couple of days later they provided me with the letter. Unbelievable.
Chronicle reporter Elena Grimm attended the library board meeting when Gary Cordes (their lawyer) was told by executive director, Dee Coover, to take us (media types) to her office (and away from a closed session meeting) to give us a “special announcement.” She has been reporting on the story ever since.
The Chronicle filed a Request for Review with the Illinois Attorney General’s office. That office is getting a drawer-full from DeKalb.
