Good afternoon Buncombe County Health Department (and Kassi / Buncombe County Government CC’d),
I’d like to make a public records request for information that may be available in your office.
Please confirm receipt to let me know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. I will plan on following up again in early October if I have not heard back before then.
Here are the details of the request:
