1. Minutes of all public meetings of the County for the preceding (6) six months;
2. Reports from the preceding fourteen (14) days which disclose the nature, substance, and location of any crime or alleged crime reported as having been committed (with the exception of records regarding juveniles);
3. Documents identifying persons confined in any jail, detention center, or prison for the preceding (3) three months (with the exception of records regarding juveniles); and
