(November 2022) Request for Lincoln County, NC Government: All current employee salaries as of present day

Hello Lincoln 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 provide Employee Names and Salaries for ALL current Lincoln County Gov. employees. As of present day (date the query is performed). Please include the following:

- Employee Name
- Position / Title / Department
- Date of Hire
- Current salary

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

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

——————
On a personal note -- I'd like to suggest, if has not already been considered, that up-to-date salary information is proactively made “public” on the County’s website, so that it does not have to be obtained via public records request. It is in the public interest to provide this information.
——————

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. 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 I cannot commit to sign any forms or pay any potential fees / associated costs related to any request. If it is not possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost.

** 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. **

Thank you for your assistance!
