This was our second attempt to inspect the Books and Records, which according to Article VII Section 3, “The District shall keep appropriate and complete” and according to Article XI, “at its principal office.” The District’s Executive Director Janet Pope informed the Lynnwood Times that the “Lynnwood Public Facilities district will not be able to meet your request for a meeting” for a Tuesday, July 25, inspection. The PFD failed to respond to our request for a 12 p.m. Thursday, July 28, inspection.
