(May 2024) Request for Brunswick [NC] Regional Water and Sewer H2GO: List of all current employees and salaries, as of the present day.

Good evening Ken, Teresa, Scott, (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. You’ve also fulfilled a request like this for me before.

Please provide a list of all current Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2GO employees and their salaries, 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.

** 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!

    The form process is a new process we started this year; you are right in that you are not required to fill it out; we just ask for our records. Attached is a copy of the information you requested. Please let me know if you have any questions.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi Deana,

     

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    Teresa Long, Bob Walker, and yourself, have all received or fulfilled this same salary data request for me in the past. In those instances I was not required to fill out a form in order for you to process my request. I do not see any current policies or forms on your website related to submitting “records requests”. (Please note the Search function in the header of your website doesn’t work at the moment).

     

    NC Public Records Law does not require me to submit an address / name / phone # / or a purpose in order for you to process my request, and it is necessary for me to “resubmit” my request using the form you attached — particularly because it was already submitted directly to the custodian(s) of those records who are therefore obligated by Law to process my request. Additionally, all of the info your form seeks to collect has been provided to you and H2GO already via my original request / email. I included a name, email address, physical address, and details about my request.

     

    That being said — I used a Mac computer to download the form you sent, but it’s virtually impossible to edit the form or insert text. Also, my request doesn’t fit into the form, and therefore I cannot provide it to you in that format.

     

    This is a very simple request for salary data, and having been provided all necessary info required by Law, hopefully you will proceed to process the request as promptly as possible.

     

    Thank you for your help!
