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 01/18/21: We received two requests for similar information around the same time. For simplicity, those requests have been merged, and will be sent in as one request.

Additionally – the above submissions have been revised for clarity, and the request we send in to Jackson County Gov will read as follows:

“Hello Jackson County, NC Government,

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

1) Please provide a current copy or link to the County’s policy and process for fulfilling public records requests. This should also include any policies for fulfilling public records requests from the general public, the media, other potential sources of requests, and from SunshineRequest.com.

2) Please provide all emails between the County Manager and any County Staff from 07/01/16 to 01/16/21 related to public records requests from any individual, entity, or service that allows the public to make such requests.

[Editor’s Note to JC Gov: In order to clarify the scope of the request – We will interpret that this item should actually say, “Please provide all emails sent between the County Manager and any County Staff from 07/01/16 to 01/16/21 related to processes and policies about fulfilling public records requests made by individuals, entities, or services that allow the public to make public records requests.”]

Thank you for your assistance!”


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 clearly addressed to government entities.

    Good afternoon Jackson County Government,

     

    I’m following up on this public records request sent on 1/21.

     

    Please confirm that the request has been received on your end, and if / when it will begin being processed. Please provide a timeline or rough estimate as to when the request will be completed, and I will follow up around the time you specify.

     

    In any case, I’ll plan to follow up again at the end of the month if I have not heard back before then.

     

    Thank you!
