(April 2022) Request for Buncombe County, NC Government: All emails and texts sent to and from County Manager 01/01/2020 – present day

Hello Buncombe County, NC Government (Records Officer),

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law.
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

Please provide all text messages and emails sent to and sent from the County Manager from 01/01/2020 through present day (date the query is performed). This request is not subject specific – I’m looking for “all” responsive records during the requested time period.

Where applicable – Please include all .PDFs, files, attachments, videos, hyperlinks, photos, etc. that are indicated within the responsive records. For example: A .PDF that is an attachment within an email or text record, should also be provided as an accompanying file.

** If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

Thank you for your assistance!

    Hi Kassi,

     

    Thank you for your reply. I’ve noted this information on our site.

     

    If anyone other than our Team email ([email protected]) reaches out to you directly to pursue a similar request, please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of the request made by our Team. We intend to continue to pursue our request.

     

    As written the sender was clear they do not wish to further narrow the scope or the time period being requested. It is intentional that the request is not subject or keyword specific. They’d like “… all text messages and emails sent to and sent from the County Manager from 01/01/2020 through present day (date the query is performed).”

     

    I acknowledge this is a potentially “lengthy” request for your office to fulfill. Please let me know when you anticipate completion, and I will wait to follow up until a time you specify.

     

    Regarding your comment, “We ask the requestor to narrow the focus with a shorter timeframe or search terms if they would like us to proceed with this request.” – If you are denying any or all parts of the fulfillment of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for the denial is justified under NC Public Records Law.

     

    Thank you for your assistance!

     

    ~ Lauren (and Sunshine Request Team)

    Hello Sunshine, thank you for your email. The request below is extremely broad and could require an extensive amount of staff time to review and process. We ask the requestor to narrow the focus with a shorter timeframe or search terms if they would like us to proceed with this request. I would also encourage this requestor to reach out to our office directly so that we may help them track down the specific information they might be looking for. Thank you,
