FOIA SETTLEMENT REACHED
Nottoway County Administrator Ronnie Roark violated Virginia’s Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) earlier this year, but the violation wasn’t made “knowingly or willfully.”
That’s the wording in a settlement agreement ordered Friday in Nottoway Circuit Court.
Roark, Nottoway’s Administrator for nearly 43 years, will have to pay costs of the court and $3,500 in attorney fees to complainant Eileen McAfee of Short Pump in Henrico County, plus her $58 court filing fee. Roark reportedly will make payment using his personal funds, not the County’s.
