    Lauren,

     

    Thank you for being so understanding. If we had more staff it wouldn’t be as big of a deal to have a quicker turnaround.

     

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Lance,

     

    Thank you for your reply.

     

    On our end — the Sunshine Request Team is flexible with the timing of fulfillment of our requests (those sent from the email [email protected]). As long as you are making reasonable efforts to fulfill our requests “as promptly as possible”, then you are likely in compliance with Public Records Law.

     

    We understand that as long as requests are actively being processed and are not being intentionally delayed, then it is acceptable that they might take some time to fulfill (depending on the scope / simplicity). And it’s reasonable that some requests may take up to 30 days.

     

    We will plan to follow up again around mid-June if we haven’t heard anything by then.

     

    Thank you for your assistance!

     

    ~ Lauren (and the Sunshine Request Team)

    No problem Mr. or Mrs. Sunshine Request. We just get a lot of request and it is a lengthy process but we work the best we can to get this information out with limited staff so I would hope the request or will be patient with the timing of the response.

    Hi Lance,

     

    NC Public Records Law does not require people making records requests to provide a purpose, or even a name, to associate with a request.

     

    For your reference – Your office recently completed a very similar April records request for “… Rockingham County employees who receive a salary of $70,000 or more per year”.

     

    (April 2022) Request for Rockingham County, NC Government: Salary info for all current $70k+ employees as of 04/20/22

     

    Please proceed with the multi-part May 2022 request above.

     

    Thank you!

    Their asking for employees making less than $70k per year. Not sure why?
