(March 2023) Request for Brunswick County, NC Government: List of all current employees and salaries as of 03/15/23 (or present day).

Hello again Meagan (or Brunswick County, NC Government Records Officer),

I’d like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

** Please Note: I am simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I am NOT asking 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 an electronic medium / format (in which the copy of this record should already exist).

I do not have any additional or further clarifying info to provide to narrow this request, other than what you see in the message below. If it is unclear, or you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law.**

If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, then please provide a link to where it can be accessed:

Please provide a list of ALL current Brunswick, NC employees and their salaries as of 03/15/2023 or present day (date the query is performed). Please include the following:

1) Employee first / last name
2) Date of hire
3) Current title / position
4) Current salary

Ideally, I’d like to receive the responsive records in an Excel or machine readable format, if possible.

By Law I am not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

Sunshine Request
PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely from the email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me or my Team. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Please note that by submitting this request, I am NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it is not possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and explanations for those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I can respond.

Thank you 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.

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.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

☀️ 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!
