    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,
    I’m writing to let you know we have no responsive records for this request. The City of Asheville did not use City funds on this project, and did not manage the hiring or procurement for the project. The Asheville Area Arts Council raised donations that funded the activities listed. Katie Cornell is the Executive Director of the Arts Council, the requestor can reach her at [email protected]
    Let me know if you have any questions.

     

    Best,
    Liz Harper (she/her)

    Good afternoon Terry,

     

    We’ve received a new public records request via our website www.sunshinerequest.com for information that may be available in your office.

     

    Please confirm receipt to let us know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. We will plan on following up again around that time. We will note on our site the statement you recently gave about how “If any of the records are located in city hall, rather than electronically, they will not be found until city employees return to city hall to work.”

     

    Here are the details of the request:
