    Hello Sunshine Request, in response to your request below, overdue fines collected at the Bess Tilson Sprinkle Memorial Library in Weaverville are collected and recorded under the category Fees/Fines. This includes fees related to prints made from the internet, replacement library cards, library cards for people who are not Buncombe County residents, meeting room use, and signing up for internet use without a library card, as well as fines paid for overdue books or to replace lost materials. Therefore we have no record responsive to the request. We can report that in FY 17 the Weaverville Library collected $14,599.16 in Fees/Fines. Those monies are deposited directly into the Buncombe County General Fund.

     

    Thank you.

    Good morning Buncombe County Government,

     

    At the end of May we received a new records request related to the Town of Weaverville and their library. We reached out to Town Manager Selena Coffey and she advised us that the library was in fact owned by Buncombe County. For a full log of communications relating to this request please refer to the following link:

    Hello. Thank you for your request. Unfortunately, the Town of Weaverville does not have the information you have requested regarding the Beth Tilson Sprinkle Memorial Library. This library is owned by Buncombe County Government and the Town of Weaverville collects no fees, nor is it responsible for the operations of the Library in any manner. We simply have the privilege of having the library in our Town limits.

     

    Be well,

    Selena

     

    Selena D. Coffey, ICMA-CM

    Town Manager, Weaverville, NC

     

    All email correspondence to and from this address is subject to public review under the NC Public Records Law.

    Good Afternoon Town of Weaverville,

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office. I attempted to send it to Derek Hunninghake, Town Clerk (dhunninghake@weavervillenc.org) and got an undeliverable notice. Please let me know if there is another preferred email, or someone else it should be sent to.
