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.
Editor’s Note 03/15/23: The request above has been revised for clarity. The original submission we received was as follows:
Date sent in to Sunshine: 03/15/23
Original Subject: Salary Request for all employees
Original Message: Brunswick County NC Employee Salary
Government Entity: Other (indicate in message)
Start Date / End Date: January 01, 2018 – March 14, 2023
The sender indicated that the “Start / End date” for the responsive records should be “January 01, 2018 – March 14, 2023”. However, we have revised this instead to say “as of 03/15/2023 or present day”. Based on our experience requesting salary data from many other entities – it is unlikely that Brunswick County will be able to query the data in that manner (on a specific date in time, or all salaries throughout an entire year, for several years, or “every month of the year, every year”). For some reason, most entities are only able to search for and provide this information “as of the present day”.
Please note: We do have some Brunswick salary information already available via other requests we completed in 2021 and 2022. You can check those out at the following URLs:
Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:
- ☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.
While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.
It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.
☀️ Please be specific:
It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact type of records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.
It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested.
While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific info the requester hopes to receive, or if it violates our policies.

☀️ Please note that we cannot pay any fees / associated costs related to any of the requests on our site. If it is not possible for a Government Agency to process our request without incurring fees, then it is the responsibility of that Agency to let us know what the potential costs may be — at which point we will ask that they cease processing the request. We will mark the request as “Completed” on our site, and the sender can contact the Government Agency directly, should they wish to further pursue a request.
Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
