(February 2024) Request for Jackson County, NC Government: New County Manager’s employment contract and salary amount, as of present day.

Good afternoon Jackson County Records Officer (or Custodian(s) of these records), all others CCed,

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which I’m making in accordance with NC Public Records Law. https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

** I am simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to "inspect", nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record should already exist and is available to you). 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. **

I believe that at a special meeting called on 02/02/24 the Board of Commissioners voted to hire Kevin King as the new County Manager, and that the Commissioners also referenced an employment contract during the meeting.

Please provide the electronic copy of Jackson County's new County Manager employment contract, as voted upon by the Commissioners on 02/02/24. If the contract does not state the County Manager's annual salary amount, then please state the amount along with a copy of the contract.

If this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

Please note that by submitting this request, I’m NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and explanations for those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

By Law I’m not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely by me and my email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.
