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 03/04/24: The submission above has been marked as “Completed”. We frequently receive requests for basic employee salary data (for ALL employees, or for specific people / employees) within a Government Entity. It is unclear in this particular case, however, what records the sender is asking to receive.

You indicated you are looking for the“Hourly rate of pay or contract pay for all Town employees as well as any contract or temp employees for the Town of Navassa, NC”  during the period of “February 01, 2024 – February 17, 2024”. In our experience requesting salary / pay data from many entities in NC, we do not think that the “hourly rate of pay or contract pay”  for individuals who are “outside contractors”, “contractors”, or “vendors” with a Town or City … is really considered to be a record that is easily looked up as part of a standard search for employee salary data.

If you’re just interested in knowing how much compensation a particular “contractor”, or, ALL “outside-contractors” working with the Town, have received in 2024 — then please specify this. Alternatively, if you’re just asking to know an overall “hourly rate of pay” for ALL “Contractors”, then it’s unlikely that will be a standardized rate, and is probably specific to each Contractor’s agreement with a Government Entity.

It is still unclear whether the submission above is actually meant to be a request for the following:

– A) A list of all current Full-time and Part-time employees’ names, positions/title/department, date of hire, salary (hourly wage, hourly rate, or salary) as of the present day.

– B) A list of all current “Vendors” and “Contractors” working with the Town. Please include their name, hourly rate of pay, and the total compensation each has received from 02/01/2024 – 02/17/24.

Please revise and submit a new request through our website. Please clearly indicate any specific details, subject, message, dates, record types, City / County / State, etc. about the exact public records that are being requested. Clarifying this info will help to greatly narrow the scope, and will also reduce the amount of time it may take the Disclosing Agency (and our Team) to process the request.


Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions, and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

Sunshine Request is a site built to make requests for public records to the government — Public records are recorded information such as documents, government emails, and data sets.

In the interest of preserving our team’s time to focus on the high volume of requests on our site, as well to respect the staff time of government entities fulfilling records requests, Sunshine Request will no longer fulfill “requests” that are just informational type questions for government entities to answer.

We also will not fulfill requests made to non-government entities.

It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.

☀️ Please be specific:

It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact type of records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.

It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific info the requester hopes to receive, or if it violates our policies.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

☀️ Code of Conduct:Please do not use Sunshine Request or any of the results of public records requests to harass government entities / employees, businesses, private citizens / individuals, or otherwise.

☀️ Please note that we cannot pay any fees / associated costs related to any of the requests on our site. If it is not possible for a Government Agency to process our request without incurring fees, then it is the responsibility of that Agency to let us know what the potential costs may be — at which point we will ask that they cease processing the request. We will mark the request as “Completed” on our site, and the sender can contact the Government Agency directly, should they wish to further pursue a request.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
