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 01/13/20: The above submission has been marked as “Completed.” As it is written, it is unclear what the scope of the request is, and what specific information the sender hopes to receive.
If the sender would like to submit a new request, clearly specifying what public records are being requesting, please do so through the form on our homepage. For example, we’ll need to know whether you are you requesting “….all emails sent to and from Buncombe County Commissioners”, “….all emails sent between Commissioners X and Y”, “….all emails sent between all County Employees,” etc, as this will drastically change the scope of the request.
Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:
- ☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.
Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request.
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.
☀️ 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.
