(August 2022) Request for Buncombe County, NC Government: Board of Adjustment Meeting minutes, video recordings, other info 01/12/22 – 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 (or, if already public online, please direct me to) PDFs of all meeting minutes and video recordings, from all Buncombe County Board of Adjustment Meetings January 12, 2022 - present day?

I would also like to know who attended each of these meetings (both regular meetings and special meetings), what decisions were made, which voting members opposed or supported those decisions, what public comments were made and by whom.

It is possible some of this information is publicly available online. However, I was unable to find it (for example - meeting minutes). If any / all of this info is publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

** 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!

    Good afternoon Kassi,

     

    I wanted to follow up on this and request clarification.

     

    I understand about July’s minutes not being up yet, but this request asked for all info as of “present day” – and since it was completed on September 14th, it should include the minutes for August and September.

     

    I was wondering where those can be accessed?

     

    Thank you!

The link is below the Agenda and Notice link. The minutes for July’s meeting are not yet available but will be updated on that page when available.
