[REQUEST 2]

Hello City of Asheville, NC Government,

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information:

1) Please provide all emails sent to and received by members of the Vance Monument task force from January 01, 2020 - Present (day the query is performed).

2) Additionally, please be sure to include all emails sent to and received by members of the Vance Monument task force from January 01, 2020 - Present (day the query is performed) which discuss the task force or monument.

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 11/16/20: The above submission has been revised for clarity.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

Thank you for using www.sunshinerequest.com!


Please Note: Currently, we have 9 types of request statuses, indicated by various colorful “face icons” on the View all Requests page, as well as in the overall “Fulfilled Status” listed at the top of each request.

The overall “Fulfilled Status” of a request may not always match the individual statuses of a request’s various activities / updates listed below the request. For example:

If the same request was made to both Buncombe County and Asheville City Governments within one request, this is treated as two requests, and it’s possible that one entity’s request statuses could get marked as “Completed,” while the Overall Status of the request is still marked as “Government Processing Request.”

This just means that Sunshine Request is waiting on the rest of the results before we can mark the request as fully “Completed” overall.

If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please search for your request via the “Search box” or list of requests on this page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.
