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 05/10/24: The submission above has been marked as “Completed”.

1) The sender indicated the “Start / End date” for the responsive records should be “January 03, 2023 to April 23, 2024″.

Please note: Based on our experiences requesting salary data from many entities – we feel it’s likely that the County won’t be able to query the data in the manner requested (on a specific date in time in the past, or “on the first day of every month, since January 2023″). Most entities seem to only be able to provide salary data “as of the present day”, or within the last month. We’re happy to send in a new request once it’s revised and resubmitted to our site, but just wanted to note that possibility for your consideration when re-writing the request.

2) Please note that since 2020 we’ve received many requests asking for various salary (or other financial data) from “all Alexander County, NC Government” employees specifically.

Just to name a few:

The new submission above is asking for some of the same data that has previously been provided to us by the County in 2023. As written, the new request would require an unnecessary duplication of some of that same info. as well as the County’s Staff’s time to provide those records.

If you would like to see the status or results of a “published” or a “completed” request related to “Alexander County”, you can do so via the View All Requests page on our website, which includes a Search function.

If after reviewing our site, and the County’s website, you are still unable to locate the records you’d like to receive — please feel free to revise and submit a new request through our site. Please clearly indicate any specific details, subject, message, dates, record types, City / County / State, etc. about the exact public records that are being requested.

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, overly broad, 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.

☀️ 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!
