(August 2020) Request for info related to “City of Asheville Disparity Study stipend payments and selection processes” as of 08/03/20

Hi City of Asheville, NC Government,

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information:

It is my belief that the City's Equity and Inclusion Department selected and provided a taxpayer funded stipend to a co-facilitator, and to menders [sic] of the study group. I'd like to know:

1) How were the members and co-facilitator chosen?
2) Who were the members and co-facilitator?
3) How much were the stipends?

Please provide the most responsive records during the requested time period of 08/01/2018 - 08/03/2020.

Thank you for your assistance!
