Good evening Suzanne, (or Records Officer / Custodian(s) of these Records),

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which I’m making in accordance with NC Public Records Law. https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

SUBJECT:
(June 2024) Request for City of Gastonia, NC Government: List of all current employees and salaries. As of the present day.

MESSAGE:
Please provide the names and salaries of all current City of Gastonia, NC employees, as of the present day [on the date the query is performed]. Please include the following:

1) Employee first / last name
2) Current position / title / department / pay grade
3) Salary [including hourly wage, hourly rate, or salary -- whichever payment structure is applicable to the employee]

Ideally, I’d like to receive the responsive records in an Excel or other machine-readable format. If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to "inspect", nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record already exists).
