    Tyler,

     

    Sorry for the delayed response, we really appreciate your assistance with the request! We’ve marked it as complete.

     

    In regard to your question, we are Sunshine Request, which is a project run and built by PRC Applications in Asheville, NC.

     

    Since all of the requests that come through our site are anonymous, we have no way of providing the name of the individual who has requested this information. Additionally, under NC Public Records Law, we are not required to include that information to make a public records request.

     

    Have a good evening!

    Hello, and thank you for writing.

     

    We will be glad to answer the questions below to the best of our ability.

     

    I do have one question: Can you please let us know the name of the individual requesting this information?

     

    Our responses to each of the following questions are in red and bold:

     

    How many law enforcement agencies are currently using this shooting range? and how many individuals?
    Our range is open to any law enforcement agencies at the federal, state and local levels – as well as company and private police. All training must be requested, scheduled and approved by SCC.

     

    How much money has Jackson County, NC, spent on clean-up?
    Jackson County has spent approximately $500,000 on the clean-up.

     

    When was the last inspection, and has anyone tested the Tuckasegee River for lead?
    The last inspection I have record of was in 2018, and yes, ECS Carolinas LLP tested the river for lead and had the following finding: “Based on the results of the surface water sample results, ECS concludes that lead from the drainage feature is not impacting the surface water in the Tuckasegee River.”

    Good afternoon Tyler,

     

    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 sent this request to Jackson County’s HR person Kathleen Breedlove and they said that they don’t have these records and they recommended to reach out to you as a possible contact for this inquiry. We’ve forwarded our correspondence from Kathleen below for you to review. Please let us know if there’s someone else we should contact.

     

    Here are the details of the request:
