(September 2023) City of Northwest, NC Government: GPS activity data for all city-owned vehicles used on 08/26/2023

Good Evening Gwen, Donna, and Mayor (or Records Officer / Custodian of Records),

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which is being made in accordance with NC Public Records Law.
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to "inspect", nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record should already exist).

I do not have any additional or further clarifying info I wish to provide to narrow this request. If the request is unclear, or 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 provide all GPS activity data for all City of Northwest, NC vehicles that were used on Saturday, August 26, 2023.
————————————

Please note that by submitting this request, I’m NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and explanations for those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

By Law I’m not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The 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 me or my Team. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Thank you for your assistance!

    Good afternoon Donna, Mayor, Gwen, and Shiela,

     

    This message is regarding my public records request mentioned in the email thread above. It was submitted to the City on September 13th:

    The last update I received was from Donna on 09/18: “I have received the request. There are some questions that the City Attorney is researching. As soon as she responds I will send all public information.”

     

    This is my 4th and final attempt to follow up with you since 10/04 regarding my previous emails sent to you all about this request. I have not received any response. Having made all reasonable attempts to follow up, I’m going to now mark this request as having been “Denied” by your organization.

     

    Once again, I’d like to encourage the City to please review your current public records fulfillment processes to ensure you’re addressing all requests in a timely manner and in accordance with NC Public Records Law.

     

    Thank you.
