Destroyed records lead to damages

From Sandusky Register: In 2010, Tod Wagner sued Huron County Commissioners and the Huron County Airport Authority for what he believed were delayed responses to public records requests — and evidence that other public records had been wrongfully destroyed, according to court documents.

Wagner, whose wife Debbie Lake-Wagner, was a former airport authority board member, first submitted the records requests in October 2010.

He requested multiple documents and audio recordings, including an easement between Huron County and Summit Motorsports Park, “Veeder Root” reports and reports of fuel sales at the airport, and audio tape records of three years of commissioners meetings and 15 years of Airport Authority meetings.
