Recently Bob Weeks submitted records requests to the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation. While organized as a non-profit corporation, the WDDC, because it receives its funding from property taxes, is subject to the Kansas Open Records Act.
But the WDDC and the City of Wichita have refused to recognize the fact that the WDDC is a public agency as defined in the Kansas Open Records Act, and therefore must follow that law.
Weeks will be at a press availability event tomorrow to provide more information and answer questions about his requests. The event will be at 2:00 Tuesday October 27, in front of the offices of the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation at 507 E. Douglas in Wichita.
For more information, call Bob Weeks day or evening at 316-708-1837.
