    Dear Sunshine Request:
    I am informed that the City of Asheville does not have a requirement that nepotism relationships, if they exist, be reported. Therefore, the City has no records responsive to this portion of this request.
    Please contact me if you have other questions.
    All best,

    Dear Sunshine Request:
    I have received this request.
    The City’s nepotism policy is contained in the City’s personnel policies, which are here.
    I will forward your request for “all reported relationships between employees” to the appropriate person(s) for processing. Once processing is complete, I will forward you any responsive records.
    The City of Asheville does not have records regarding retired employees; therefore, the City has no records regarding your request about employees still receiving a pension. The Local Government Retirement System is part of the North Carolina State Treasurer’s Office and the City has no records of that office.
    Please contact me if you have questions.
    All best,
