    Good afternoon Kassi,

     

    Thank you for your help with this request. Yesterday you sent us files for a separate request on our site: (September 2020) Request for all electronic communications with Buncombe County Commission Chairman as of 09/16/20)

     

    The files provided also apply to this request, and therefore this request is now marked as completed.

     

    We appreciate your assistance!

    **11/24/20 Editor’s Note: Yesterday we received this email from Buncombe County Government with files that pertain to a separate, but similar, request with a longer timeline than this current request. Although it’s a different request, the files provided by the County complete this request. Thank you for using Sunshine Request!

    Hello Sunshine, we received a similar request yesterday and have extended this review to include the new dates and will respond to both at the same time. We are currently working on this.
