    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,
    The emails for this request are with our Legal team and I will review them during our weekly meetings. I will investigate further to see if the text messages and other communications have been gathered. As this request was received before I was in this role, I do not have any information regarding the delay.
    Best,

    Good afternoon Liz,

     

    We’re following up on this request that was sent in on June 11th: (June 2020) Request for communications between Asheville, NC Police Chief and Deputy Chief 06/02 – 06/03/20

     

    At this point there is no clarity on the request’s estimated completion date, or what is taking so long for the request to be processed. Can you please let us know what is the specific reasoning for the delay, and whether that’s on the City’s end, APD, legal, etc. and when it will be completed?

     

    We appreciate all your help,
    Sunshine Request

    Good afternoon Terry,

     

    We’re following up on this request that we marked as completed last week: (June 2020) Request for communications between Asheville, NC Police Chief and Deputy Chief 06/02 – 06/03/20

     

    Can you please clarify whether the records you provided actually do satisfy this request that asked for “all communications sent to or from Asheville Police Chief Zack and Deputy Chief Baumstark on June 2 and June 3, 2020. I am specifically requesting email, text messages, and any other communication platforms used (e.g. mobile apps).”

     

    We didn’t see either person’s email addresses or names mentioned in the results and wanted to check with you.

     

    Thank you!

    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:

     

    Subject: (June 2020) Request for communications between Asheville, NC Police Chief and Deputy Chief 06/02 – 06/03/20
