(June 2024) Request for Rutherford County, NC Government: Contracts and agreements from 12/05/22 – 06/11/24.

Good evening Kim, Kristina, Amy, Paula, Steve, (or Records Officer / Custodian(s) of these records),

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which I’m making in accordance with NC Public Records Law. https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

NCGS 14-234(a) describes the creation or administration of contracts by public officers or employees on behalf of a public agency, deriving a direct benefit from a contract, influencing anyone involved in making or administering the contract, solicitation of gifts, receiving favors, promises, etc.

If such a record exists –
Please provide the electronic copy of any contract(s) and agreement(s) executed by Sheriff Aaron Ellenburg on behalf of the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office, where his spouse is an employee, consultant, lobbyist, or independent contractor for the vendor under the contract. During the specific time period of 12/05/2022 through 06/11/2024.

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to “inspect”, nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record already exists). If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

Please note that by submitting this request, I’m NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and clear explanations of those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

By Law I’m not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely by me and my email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me.
