 When you have a minute, could you please check if the county received an invoice for Hole in the Wall pumping on or about 5/18 and send a digital copy? It’s been done weekly or more often (except in the winter) for years, so it’s odd that there is no invoice in the accounts payable when previous and following weeks were 3100-3120 gallons. Was a payment made in an end of the year transaction that didn’t show in the regular monthly accounts payable report?

22-33 10.21.2022 Jessica Christensen I would like to see the email Mr. David Jones mentions was sent from Ms. Linda Hodges to Chairman Paul Hudgins during the Joint Work Session between the School Board and the Board of Supervisors on October 11, 2002. Mr. Jones did not state a specific date that this email was sent, so I would like to see any email communication between Linda Hodges, Paul Hudgins and David Jones from October 1, 2021 to October 14, 2022. Thank you in advance! 
 And as I reviewed my FOIA request I realized that I asked about emails between Mr Hudgins, Mr Jones, and Ms Hodges. I realized I should have requested just between Mr Hudgins and Ms Hodges only as one search, not including Mr Jones. Is that possible, to modify one search to be just between Mr Hudgins and Ms Hodges, and another between the three? Thanks!
