Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note to Sender 03/06/24: The submission above has been marked as “Completed.”

Our Team has experienced long delays or other issues with the fulfillment of several requests we’ve sent to the City of Northwest since 2022. In those instances we’ve expressed our concerns to the City regarding their responsiveness and records request fulfillment process. We do understand though that there may be many reasons for a delay. 

Besides a general phone number, email address for the City Clerk / Finance and the Mayor, and a general Contact Form, right now there is no other contact info publicly available on the City’s website: https://cityofnorthwest.com/

Currently, we have two records requests “open” with the City. We are actively working to get a response. If we do not hear back this week, then we will discuss as a Team and consider our next steps. You can track the status of those requests at the following URLs:

(December 2023) City of Northwest, NC Government: Multi-part request. GPS activity data for all Full-Time Officer Police vehicles used 01/01/2023 – present. And the total number of “vehicle wrecks” that have happened to Police Dept. vehicles 01/01/2022 – present.

(February 2024) Request for City of Northwest, NC Government: Current listing of all active City Ordinances, as of the present day.

Until we receive a response or some resolution from the City regarding our requests — unfortunately, it will not be possible for our small Team to spend additional time sending any new requests to the City of Northwest, NC. We apologize for the inconvenience.

In the meantime — if any new info you’d like to request is urgent or is needed in a timely manner, then we ask that you please consider reaching out to the City directly for assistance with any new requests.

Additional Note for Users: Sunshine Request does not control if / when Government entities will confirm receipt, begin processing, complete, or deny requests we submit to them via our website. If you would like to make a request that is time sensitive, we recommend that you reach out to the appropriate government entity directly for assistance with a request, rather than submitting through our site.

Sunshine Request is run by a very small team. Due to holidays, unforeseen events / scheduling conflicts, there may be times that we cannot publish or update requests for several days. We will do our best to process all requests as quickly as possible.

We review and send in requests to the appropriate entities as quickly as we are able, and it is up to the Government agency to determine the timeline and speed with which the request can be processed. We generally try to follow up on requests once every 1 – 2 weeks as we’re able, until the government agency has confirmed that the request has been received and is being processed (and there is some timeline for completion), and we will wait to follow up again during the time period they specify.

Please do not send us additional submissions asking that we “follow up on” a request on our site, or to ask for a status update on a request. If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please “Search” for your request via the “Search box”, or by viewing the list of requests on the View All Requests page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
