    Good morning Sunshine Request,
    The City of Asheville has no records responsive to this request. It is the City’s understanding that Ms. Hitch paid all costs associated with her travel to attend this particular training event from her own personal funds.
    Have a good week,

     

    Liz Harper (she/her)
