Public records request – Haywood County, NC travel expenditures

Hello. We would like to make a public records request for itemized travel expenditures by the Macon County 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: The above request is a duplication of a request we have already “Sent to Government” called “Public records request – Macon County, NC travel expenditures” :

“Hello. We would like to make a public records request for itemized travel expenditures by the Macon County 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.

You may keep track of the status of that request here. 


The only difference in the two requests is that the new request lists “Haywood County” in the Subject line, and the sender also indicated in the admin section of the webform that the date range should include “July 1, 2005 – January 31, 2019“. We will assume that since the request also names “Macon County” in the body of the request, that the sender actually meant to type “Haywood County” in this case, and not “Macon”. Therefore, the request we will send to gov. will be as follows:

Subject: Public records request – Haywood County, NC travel expenditures

    Good Afternoon Haywood County Government,

     

    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 received a request for information that may be available in your office. If there’s another party that we should be contacting about this request then please let us know.

     

    Here are the details sent by the requester:
