[See Editor’s Note](June 2020) Submission related to “Follow up” on (October 2019) Buncombe County employee parking access info

Could Buncombe County possibly follow up on this request that is now 8 months old [Editor's note: The request was previously completed on 12/13/19, and was "reopened" on 12/19/19] and which has consistently been ignored.

Good afternoon Kassi,

We have gotten a follow up request related to this now completed request. We’ve reopened the original request and have included the details of this follow up request below.

Message: “Hello Buncombe County, NC Government,

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

Recently, the results of a now Completed request (at https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/october-2019-request-for-buncombe-county-employee-parking-access-info/) confirmed that non-county employees/personnel were apparently given access to employee only parking lots.

The County did not answer question #4 of the request, which I believe would have responsive records:

Specifically, “4. Please provide a list of all non-county employees who currently, or have in the last 12 months (10/04/18 – 10/04/19), had access or been issued a pass card which would grant access to Buncombe County Employee only lots.”

Since these access cards require computer programming, there are records maintained by Buncombe County of who has access cards which would allow parking in restricted lots. I respectfully request that Buncombe County re-open the original request, and that they now provide any and all records related to the following:

“Please provide a list of all non-county persons who currently, or have in the last 14 months (10/04/18 – 12/07/19, had access or been issued a pass card which would grant access to Buncombe County Employee only lots.”

Thank you for your assistance!”

We appreciate your help,
Sunshine Request

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 06/12/20: The above submission has been marked as “Completed.” This submission asks for follow up, in reference to another follow up request we received related to a completed October 2019 request (now reopened) found here.

Most recently, Sunshine Request followed up on that additional request on 05/15/20. We follow up again soon, as we are able, as we work through requests on our site. As noted by BC Gov – Due to the COVID 19 outbreak BC Gov may experience delays in their processing of requests.

Please keep track of the status of the request here.

Note for site users: Sunshine Request does not control if / when Government entities will confirm receipt, begin processing, complete, or deny requests we submit to them via our website. If you would like to make a request that is time sensitive, we recommend that you reach out to the appropriate government entity directly for assistance with a request, rather than submitting through our site.

Sunshine Request is run by a very small team. We do our best to review and send in requests to the appropriate entities as quickly as we are able, and it is up to the Government agency to determine the timeline and speed with which the request can be processed. We generally try to follow up on requests once every 1 – 2 weeks as we’re able, until the government agency has confirmed that the request has been received and is being processed (and there is some timeline for completion), and we will wait to follow up again during the time period they specify.

Please do not send us additional submissions asking that we “follow up on” a request on our site, or to ask for a status update on a request. If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please “Search” for your request via the “Search box” or by viewing the list of requests on the View All Requests page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.

We are a small team — due to holidays, unforeseen events / scheduling conflicts, there may be times that we cannot publish or update requests for several days. We will do our best to process all requests as quickly as possible.

Thank you for using www.sunshinerequest.com!
