(March 2024) Request for Pender County, NC Government: List of all current employees and salaries. As of the present day.

Good afternoon Meg, David, Allen, Lexi, (or 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

** 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). If 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. **

The type of basic salary data I’m requesting is simple to provide, is very commonly produced, and is widely considered a matter of public record as part of the public personnel file of employees. Many NC entities fulfill requests like this via email in 1 week, and in many cases 1 day.

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

1) Employee first / last name
2) Date of hire
3) Position / title / department
4) 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.
————————————

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

By Law I’m 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 by me and my email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me. Please do not commingle or treat that as an alteration or cancellation of my request – I intend to continue to pursue my request.

Thank you for your assistance!

    Hi Lexi,

     

    Thank you for confirming receipt of my request.

     

    Many NC government entities fulfill basic salary requests like this via email in 1 week, and in many cases 1 day. However, I do understand if you have a backlog of other requests to work through fulfilling at the moment.

     

    I will follow up again at the end of the month (if I haven’t heard anything else before then).

     

    Thank you for your help!

    Good afternoon,

     

    Thank you for submitting your public records request. I will let you know if we have a record(s) to respond with. I will do my best to answer as quickly as possible however, I am the sole person in charge of responding to requests and am already working on filling others. I typically respond in order of which they are received and based on the size of the request. Your request is rather large and may take some time.

     

    Thank you for understanding.
