(June 2021) Request for City of Asheville, NC Police Department emails related to “ERT” 01/01/21 – 05/24/21

Hi City of Asheville, NC Government (Records Officer),

I’d like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law:

Please provide all emails during the specific time period of January 01, 2021 through May 24, 2021 sent to and sent from, the City of Asheville Police Department's Deputy Chief Baumstark, Captain Stepp, Lieutenant Brown, and Stephanie Craig. Specifically, I am requesting all emails pertaining to the subject matter or referencing ERT.
-----

For all requested items above, please provide all .pdfs, files, attachments, videos, hyperlinks, etc. that are indicated within the responsive records. For example: A .pdf that is an attachment within an email, should also be provided as a document along with the responsive emails.

Please include all of those additional documents where applicable, as relates to the requested information above.

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.

Thank you for your assistance!

    Good afternoon City of Asheville Public Records,

     

    I am following up a second time on this request from 6/30/21 to see if there’s any update to report: (June 2021) Request for City of Asheville, NC Police Department emails related to “ERT” 01/01/21 – 05/24/21

     

    Back on January 18th, we received this update:
    “Your email request is now number 3 in the email queue. Once the emails are collected and reviewed for confidential information, you will be sent any responsive records. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.”

     

    Do you have an estimated timeline for completion? We’d like to get some resolution for the sender so that they know what to expect.

     

    I will plan on following up again at the end of the month if I don’t hear back before then.

     

    Thank you!
