(October 2022) Request for City of Asheville, NC: Communications between CD Homeless Services Systems Performance Lead and Sunrise Community for Recovery and Wellness staff/executives/board members. [December 1, 2021 – February 28, 2022]

Hello 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.
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

Please provide ALL communications [emails, SMS texts, Google Chat messages, Facebook Messenger] between Emily Ball (CD Homeless Services Systems Performance Lead) and Sunrise Community for Recovery and Wellness staff/executives/board members. During the specific time period of December 1, 2021 - February 28, 2022. This request is not subject specific – I’d like ALL communications during that time.

I am not requesting to come in person to inspect, nor to obtain printed copies of, electronic records. In accordance with NC Public Records Law, I’m requesting explicitly that all responsive records be provided via an electronic medium / format (in which the records should already exist), such as an email, file share, google drive folder, mailed flash drive if necessary, etc.

[**I do not have any additional or further clarifying information to provide. 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: The City will soon receive several other similar requests as the one above from the Sunshine Request Team. However, each one is unique, with a different Title / Date Range. Please do not combine or merge requests.

This request has been sent solely from the email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from our Team. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of our request – We intend to continue to pursue our request.

Please note that we cannot commit to sign any forms or pay any potential fees / associated costs related to any request. If it is not possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let us know the itemized potential cost.

Thank you for your assistance!

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.

    subject: status of requests is email search queue

     

    Good morning, Sunshine Request,

     

    I received your messages inquiring about the status of your requests that are in the City of Asheville Email Search Queue, and I wanted to let you know what’s going on.

     

    As you know, public records requests for emails are processed in the order received, as we have found that to be the most fair and equitable way to fulfill these requests. However there are rare occurrences in which I am tasked with pulling emails for separate matters outside of public records requests, such as judicially mandated litigation matters. In these cases, there is no flexibility over the deadlines given by the Court and these pulls therefore have to take priority. That is what has happened here; I am currently working on an email pull for a litigation matter in which there is no leeway with the given deadline. As soon as I have this completed, the email pulls for public records requests will resume. I appreciate your patience and understanding.

     

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.

     

    Best,

    Allison Byers
    Public Records Officer
    City of Asheville

    Good afternoon City of Asheville Public Records,

     

    I am following up on this request because it hasn’t changed position on the email queue spreadsheet over the past couple of weeks.

     

    Is there any update you can provide related to this request and when you anticipate it to be completed? I will plan on following up again in November if I don’t hear back before then.
