Deputy City Atty. Paul Emery said he still hadn't finalized a release date. The documents are confidential until negotiations are complete, and will be available "as soon as I get it done with the attorney," he said Tuesday. The City Council will receive the documents 24 hours before the public does.
The news was received with skepticism from anti-Poseidon activists.
"First of all, a lot of the those documents should have been released a long time ago," said John Earl. "Even if they're in negotiations, some of those documents would be legally available."
Earl and other activists had made a public information request for the documents on Oct. 26, which was answered by a request for an extension 10 days later from the city attorney's office. After that, the group never heard back the city, prompting an outcry from activists and a public apology from City Atty. Jennifer McGrath.
"I'm still not clear really what we're going to get. I'm very disappointed in this whole process of trying to get information. The city needs to get its act together. It's clearly violating the law," Earl said.
