    I don’t seek to escalate this, but we do not have a record that captures the information requested for each specific day. If that date is significant for some reason, then I am willing ask that hr pull the personnel record(s) for a specific employee or a few employees on that specific date.

     

    (e) Nothing in this section shall be construed to require a public agency to respond to a request for a copy of a public record by creating or compiling a record that does not exist. If a public agency, as a service to the requester, voluntarily elects to create or compile a record, it may negotiate a reasonable charge for the service with the requester. Nothing in this section shall be construed to require a public agency to put into electronic medium a record that is not kept in electronic medium. (1995, c. 388, s. 3; 2004-129, s. 38.)

    Please let me know if you think we are not complying with public records laws on this.

    Good afternoon Aaron,

     

    Thank you for sending this over! We’ll add this information to the request on our site.

     

    However the responsive records seem to only be for 9/16/20, and this July request asked for positions and salary information as of 7/24/20 specifically. Can you please clarify whether you are able to resubmit the report only including the requested info as of 7/24/20, or are you only able to provide information as of whatever date the query is performed?

     

    As an aside, please note – we did receive another request for similar information today. This request has been posted on our website, however our team has not officially sent in the request to Buncombe County Government. Please do not process any Sunshine Requests until they have been sent into your office by our team.

     

    We appreciate all your help!

    Hello Sunshine Requests,

     

    Attached you will find a PDF with the name, title and salary for BCSO employees as of 9/16/2020.

     

    A separate attached PDF has our current org chart.

     

    I believe this should fulfill the request.

     

    Aaron

    **9/2/20 Editor’s Note: Today we called Buncombe County Sheriff’s Department to inquire if there was a better contact than Aaron for public records requests. They told us to send them to Vicki Kuykendall, Crime Analyst and Records Supervisor. We will be following up with Vicki next week on Sheriff’s Department related requests. Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
