Editor’s Note 05/03/23: The submission above has been marked as “Completed.”
Since 2018 we have published many requests related to this topic. Most recently, in November 2022:
Throughout this process, you can see where we have requested various points of clarification from the City, and were provide with many explanations or web links from Liz, Brad, Allison, etc. For example:
We’ve been told by the City that to request APD employee names, positions, dates of hire, we should just use that data link. ^^ You can see that the City’s Open Data Portal for the “EmployeeBaseSalary” data set is up-to-date, and includes: current employee_name , annual_base_pay , hire_date , exempt_group , dept_id , department , div_id , division , jobtitle . Y ou can also Filter the results specifically to show APD employees.
If the information you’d like to receive is not already available on the City’s site, please revise and submit a new request to our website. Please clearly indicate a specific date range and any other specific details, subject matter, message, keywords, etc. about the exact public records that are being requested.
Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:
☀️ Requests that include profanity, personal statements, opinions, possibly defamatory statements, or other unnecessary info that is not relevant to making a records request.
Please do not include personal opinions and statements in the request’s Subject or Message. Please omit any extraneous statements that are not specific to the exact information you’d like to receive.

☀️ Please note that we cannot pay any fees / associated costs related to any of the requests on our site.
