    Good afternoon City of Asheville Public Records, Brad, and Debra,

     

    I’d like to ask again that you please provide an anticipated date of completion for this records request, sent to the City on September 25, 2020.

     

    The request was removed from the City’s email queue spreadsheet at some point after Sep 25, 2020 (when Terry White told us “… This request is number 19 in the email queue”) and Jan 28, 2021 (when Liz Harper told us, “This request is now number 5 in the queue”). Therefore, we cannot track its progress without emailing you directly.

     

    On March 09, 2021 Liz Harper said: “… This search has been completed and the resulting 2,300 emails have been divided among four members of our legal team for review. Once they have been reviewed, I will send along all that are responsive.”

     

    The last we heard was from Allison on October 11, 2022: “… I apologize for my delayed response. There is no further update on this request (#21-69) at this time; it is still in the final stages of legal review. As soon as legal review is complete, I will forward you the link to all responsive records.”

     

    It is unreasonable that a 2+ year old request for emails covering a 3 month period (07/01/20 – 09/30/20) sent and received by 1 person, and reviewed by 4 members of a legal team for nearly 20 months, has not been fulfilled by now.

     

    Please provide a timeline for completion. I will check in with you one more time early next month if I do not hear back before then.

     

    Thank you.

     

    ~ Lauren (and the Sunshine Request Team)

    Good afternoon City of Asheville Public Records,

     

    I’m following up again to ask for an anticipated date of completion for this request that was first sent to the City on September 25, 2020.

     

    The request is now over 2 years old. It was also removed from the City’s email queue spreadsheet at some point after Sep 25, 2020 (the last time we heard from then Records Officer, Terry White, that “… This request is number 19 in the email queue.”). Therefore, I cannot track it’s progress without emailing you directly.

There is no further update on this request (#21-69) at this time; it is still in the final stages of legal review.

    It is unreasonable that an over 2 year old request for emails covering a 2 month period (07/01/20 – 09/30/20) sent and received by 1 person, and apparently reviewed by 4 members of a legal team for 1.50 years, has not been fulfilled by now.

     

    Please provide the anticipated date of completion, or, please follow up with legal staff to find out that date and let me know. I will check in with you one more time at the end of the month if I do not hear back before then.

    Hi City of Asheville Public Records (Brad and Debra CCed),

     

    Following up again on the request above [ (September 2020) Request for “AVL Director of Equity and Inclusion” emails 07/01/20 – 09/30/20 ]. This request was first sent to the City on September 25, 2020 ].

     

    On March 09, 2021 then Public Records Officer Liz Harper indicated:

     

    “This search has been completed and the resulting 2,300 emails have been divided among four members of our legal team for review. Once they have been reviewed, I will send along all that are responsive.”

     

    The most recent update I received was on July 26, 2022:

     

    “This request is still in the final stages of legal review. As soon as legal review is complete, I will forward you the responsive records.”

     

    As it is almost 2 years old and has been “under legal review” for nearly 1.50 years … I ask that you please provide an estimated date for completion as well as an explanation for the delay, and, why the “legal review” of this request has taken so long. Is this typical?

     

    I’ve also noticed that the request is no longer in the City’s “Email queue” spreadsheet:

     

    – Terry White. Sep 25, 2020. “This request is number 19 in the email queue.”

    – Liz Harper. Oct 29, 2020. “Your request is currently number 18 in the queue.”

    – Liz Harper. Dec 11, 2020. “This request is now 16 in the queue. I hope to make significant progress on the email queue in the next month. Thank you for your patience.”

    – Liz Harper. Jan 28, 2021. “This request is now number 5 in the queue.

    – Sunshine Request. Mar 23, 2022. “We are aware that the City has a spreadsheet for the Public Records Email Search Queue, however this request does not appear to be listed there? The last update we received on this request was back on 12/7/21 when Leslie said: “…This is a large request and we are actively working on finishing up the review. I expect to have it completed within a few weeks. “

    – Open Gov. Jul 26, 2022. “This request is in the final stages of legal review, and I hope to have it wrapped up soon. As soon as legal review is complete, I will forward you the responsive records.”

    [email protected] May 2, 2022. “Good morning, Sunshine Request, Your request is still in legal review. As soon as legal review is complete I will forward you the responsive emails. We appreciate your patience.”

     

    I will follow up again at the end of the month, if I don’t hear back before then.

    Sunshine,

     

    We are in the final stages of completing this request. This particular search produced several thousand records, more than 6,000 of which require an attorney’s review before production. Currently, four attorneys are working on this review in order to complete it. Once finalized, those records will be produced.

    Hi City of Asheville Public Records, Brad and Debra now CCed,

     

    I am aware that the City was in the process, or perhaps has now completed (?) a recent search for a new records officer.

     

    This message is related to our September 2020 records request found at: https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/september-2020-request-for-avl-director-of-equity-and-inclusion-emails-07-01-20-09-30-20/

    I am obviously still interested in obtaining these records, and it is the team at Sunshine Request who has unsuccessfully been following up with the City ([email protected]) to get an update since January 2022.

     

    This request was originally sent in to a former records officer (Terry White) back on September 25, 2020. Since the Next Request system did not exist on the City’s website at that time, the request was sent in via email:

     

    to: Terry White <[email protected]>
    cc: Public Records Request Inbox <[email protected]>
    date: Sep 25, 2020, 3:02 PM
    subject: Records Request: (September 2020) Request for “AVL Director of Equity and Inclusion” emails 07/01/20 – 09/30/20

     

    The last update we received was on 12/07/2021 when (then records officer) Leslie Coty said: “…This is a large request and we are actively working on finishing up the review. I expect to have it completed within a few weeks.“

     

    We have followed up 4 times since Leslie’s 12/07/21 email with no reply. I am aware that the City has a spreadsheet for the Public Records Email Search Queue we can look at for updates. However, for some reason our September 2020 request does not appear to have been listed in that queue as of this writing…

     

    It also appears that the request was entered into the City’s Next Request portal by the City back in August 2021: https://cityofashevillenc.nextrequest.com/requests/21-69. As there have been several changes in staffing / records processes in the past years, for simplicity we’ve been following up on our original request thread via email to this point.

     

    If you need to see all those communications, you can access them on our website at: https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/september-2020-request-for-avl-director-of-equity-and-inclusion-emails-07-01-20-09-30-20/

     

    I’d appreciate it if you could please provide an estimated timeline for completion and an explanation for the delay in processing. I will plan on following up again in early April if I don’t hear back before then.

     

    At whatever point the request is fulfilled – if using Next Request – Please ensure that this request is made “public / published” on the NR portal so that the public can view ALL associated communications / files / documents, in their entirety within Next Request.

     

    Thank you!
    Sunshine Request Team / Lauren

    Good afternoon City of Asheville Public Records,

     

    I am following up again on this request from September 2020: (September 2020) Request for “AVL Director of Equity and Inclusion” emails 07/01/20 – 09/30/20

     

    We are aware that the City has a spreadsheet for the Public Records Email Search Queue, however this request does not appear to be listed there? The last update we received on this request was back on 12/7/21 when Leslie said: “…This is a large request and we are actively working on finishing up the review. I expect to have it completed within a few weeks. “

     

    This is our fourth follow up since Leslie’s 12/7 email with no reply, and we’d really appreciate it if you could please provide an estimated timeline for completion and an explanation for the delay in processing. I will plan on following up again in early April if I don’t hear back before then.

     

    Thank you!

    Good afternoon City of Asheville Public Records,

     

    I am following up another time on this request from September 2020: (September 2020) Request for “AVL Director of Equity and Inclusion” emails 07/01/20 – 09/30/20

     

    Is there an anticipated timeline for completion? Even if it’s a rough guess, we’d like to provide some idea for the original sender so that we can hopefully get some resolution and close this out on our site. The last update we received on this request was back on 12/7/21 when Leslie said: “…This is a large request and we are actively working on finishing up the review. I expect to have it completed within a few weeks. “

     

    I will plan on following up again at the end of this month if I don’t hear back before then, and if after that follow up I still haven’t received a reply I will go ahead and mark this request as denied. If at any point after it’s marked as denied you wish to reply and complete the request, I’ll be happy to reopen the request at that time.

     

    Thank you!
