    Good afternoon Liz,

     

    We’re following up on this request that was sent in on June 17th: (June 2020) Request for contracts / communications between Cole Pro Media and the City of Asheville, NC

     

    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 morning 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:
