Court: Nottoway Administrator violated FOIA

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.
