(March 2024) Request for Town of Navassa, NC Government: All current employees and salaries. As of the present day.

Good afternoon Michelyn (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

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 Town of Navassa, NC employees as of the present day [on the date the query is performed]. If this info. is a matter of public record, please also include Claudia Bray (who I believe is a “Contractor” for the Town of Navassa). 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.

** 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. **

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 Michelyn,

     

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    Just to confirm — besides Claudia, are there really only 6 employees working for the Town of Navassa, NC?

     

    If that’s the case, then I’ll accept your last response as the completion of my request. However, if that’s not the case, please provide the salaries of all Town of Navassa, NC employees as requested.

     

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Michelyn,

     

    Thank you for your reply. However, I’m not sure that was intended to be a response to my request.

     

    I asked for the following:

     

    “… the names and salaries of all current Town of Navassa, NC employees as of the present day [on the date the query is performed]. If this info. is a matter of public record, please also include Claudia Bray (who I believe is a “Contractor” for the Town of Navassa). 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]”

     

    Can you please clarify?

     

    Thank you!
