Who's the City's insurance broker of record?

On September 27, 2017, the following memo was sent to City Council




















A few weeks ago, Jim Odom, the City's long time insurance broker of record passed away.  This is an advertised RFQ position.   I was wondering who is presently serviing in that role and made the following records request.

On September 27 the City Administrator issued a memo informing Council of the Mayor purchasing insurance policies.  Who was the selling insurance agent for each policy listed in the memorandum.  Additionally, with Mr. Odom passing away who is the City's agent of record since his passing?  When is the agent of record due to be rebid?

The response I got?

The City of Pensacola has reviewed its files and has determined there are no responsive records or documents to your request for public records.

How can the City no longer have a Broker of Record?

Insurance guys, any insight here?

Your request was for information-- not records. You asked a simple question that should have a simple answer-- but since they're only obligated to provide access to records they can stonewall with the "no responsive records" non-answer, forcing you to make a very broad request that could incur a lot of staff time-- and therefore cost-- to fulfill.
