(February 2022) Multi-part request for Buncombe County, NC Gov: Staff / Officials emails 01/01/2010 – Present, and misc. contracts

Hello Buncombe County, NC Government (Records Officer),

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

A. Please provide all emails sent between any and all Buncombe County Staff, Bunc. Co. Elected Officials [unspecified], Board of Commissioners, and Board and/or Staff of Working Wheels, during the specific time period of 01/01/2010 - Present (date the query is performed).

B. Please provide all internal emails that mention "Working Wheels", during the specific time period of 01/01/2010 - Present (date the query is performed).

[** Editor's Note: We will interpret "internal" to mean, "Buncombe County Staff and Elected Officials".]

C. Please provide all contracts [date unspecified] if they exist, between Buncombe County and Working Wheels.

——————

**As relates to emails – Please provide the files in a .PDF format so that they can easily be opened / viewed.

Please provide any .pdfs, other files, attachments, videos, hyperlinks, etc. that are indicated or referenced within the responsive records. For example: A .pdf that is an attachment within an email, should also be provided as a file along with the responsive emails. Or, a link should be provided so that the file can be opened.

If the records are ultimately too large to send via emailed file share, I'd ask that you please create a public Google Drive folder / link or some other file format to transfer the files electronically.

** I understand that due to the volume of this request, it could take some time to process. If possible, please provide an estimated timeline for completion. 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!

    Hello Sunshine, we have received this request. According to the articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State, this nonprofit was not incorporated until 2017. We’ll start our query from that point on. Thank you,
