Public records request – Jackson County, NC travel expenditures

Hello. We would like to make a public records request for itemized travel expenditures by the Jackson County, NC Board of Commissioners Chairman and all other commissioners. The time period requested is 2006 through 2018. Additionally, we would like the same data for the current year.

We would appreciate the data being provided in .csv format with individual clearly identified for each travel expenditure, reason for travel, dollar amount for each transaction and vendor the payment was made to.

Also, please include a break down of any per diem paid to Chairman of BOC and Commissioners. Thanks in advance for your assistance!

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.

03/22/19 Editor’s Note to Sender: We have received several requests for this same information related to different counties in NC. In most cases the sender has indicated in the request message that the time frame should include “2006 through 2018” and that, “Additionally, we would like the same data for the current year.”

However, in the dates admin section of the request form they’ve also indicated the timeframe should be “July 1, 2005 – January 31, 2019.”  In those cases, that admin. date range is what we will be requesting for the particular government entity, as is the case with the above request for Jackson County, NC.

    Heather and Darlene,

     

    Maybe we can discuss this afternoon. This request is asking for a report that does not exist to be created. So the standard response is to let them know this. But I visited their website and they grade you on the response.
