Good afternoon Jackson County Public Records,
I’d like to make a public records request for information that may be available in your office.
If you’re not the appropriate party to contact about the request, please provide the correct name and email address of whom I should send it to.
Please confirm receipt to let me know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. I will plan on following up again around the end of the month if I have not heard back before then.
Here are the details of the request:
Subject: (January 2022) Request for Jackson County, NC Gov: Communications related to public records requests policies and procedures 01/01/21 – 08/27/21
Message: “Hi Jackson County, NC Government (Records Officer),
I’d like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law
Related to Jackson County, NC Public records requests policy /
policies, and “denied” public record requests —
Please provide all emails and other forms of communication (emails, text, phone, etc.) sent to, sent from, and sent between, the County Manager, County Attorney, HR Director, and Chairman of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners (and any subset of that group) during the specific time period of January 01, 2021 through
August 27, 2021.
Specifically, as relates to the following topics only:
– The Jackson County public records request policy (and policies).
– Lack of responsiveness to public records requests.
– Directions to staff indicating a response is not necessary for public records requests.
– Denial of public records requests.
Please provide the emails in a .PDF format so that they can easily be opened / viewed.
As relates to emails – 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.
** 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!”
