Hello Loren:


On June 27, 2019, we received your public records request for the following records:


Under the Public Records Act we request access and copies of the following:

1. Unclaimed or outstanding checks including dates, names, last addresses and amounts due the payees that have been going unclaimed for at least six months but not more than five years. (Generally these are vendor or accounts payable checks.)

2. All unclaimed bonds and bond proceeds, including the dates, names, last addresses, and amounts due the bondholders. (Bonds are debt obligations issued by public agencies that use the loans to fund public projects such as the construction of schools, hospitals, and highways. We're not interested in performance bonds.)

A list of these items, rather than actual copies is acceptable. And we can accept it by email.

We are only interested in items that are $5,000 or over and ones issued by your office (not ones that have escheated to the state unclaimed property office).

Our intent is to locate the rightful owners and assist them in claiming their money. Our firm has been in business over 35 years. We continue our mission of helping agencies, like yours, clear unclaimed items off their books, which is a good accounting practice, and help citizens recover their lost assets.

We are willing to pay reasonable costs. Please give us an estimate of the cost before beginning the work.

We appreciate a reply within 10 working days as provided for in the law. You may also respond via e-mail at


This communication will confirm our completion of your request. We have searched for responsive records and not been able to locate or identify any records. As a result, there are no responsive records related to your request that are maintained by my office.


My office will now close your public records request.
