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 01/09/23: The submission above has been marked as “Completed”. As written,  it is unclear what specific information the sender hopes to receive. We’d ask that the sender please revise and submit a new request, clearly indicating specific date ranges and any other specific details about the exact public records that are being requested.

Additionally — Please note. On December 19th, we completed a request for City of Eden, NC Government: All current employees, salaries, and “rates of pay”. As of present day.

We do not know whether the City of Eden already has a public data dashboard with salary info, and/or if their salary info is proactively being made public online.

We are happy to continue to send in records requests on the sender’s behalf to obtain updated salary info. However, if the sender plans to request updated employee salaries on a monthly or semi-regular basis, we would also recommend they try getting in touch with the City, and ask them to consider posting that type of info on their website (or on an open data dashboard), on a recurring basis – As it is in the public interest. Perhaps something similar to what the City of Asheville, NC uses:



Thank you for using Sunshine 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 city / county / state 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.
