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 07/08/21: The above submission has been revised for clarity. As originally written it is unclear what specific information the sender wants to receive — whether that’s a full list of all properties owned by Duke Energy within City limits, as well as a list of which properties are “not being utilized” currently. Or, just a list of Duke’s properties in City limits which are not being utilized. This may also be a request which is really for Duke Energy (if they are even a government entity or entity subject to NC public records laws).
Additionally — The sender indicated in the “Start date / End date” section on the request form on our site that the timeline included in this request should be 06/01/2000 through 06/22/2021. However, given that broad scope, as well as the actual message that was originally sent in (with a different date), we will interpret on their behalf that this broad timeline is erroneous and is not relevant to the requested information.
The request sent to AVL Gov will be submitted as written above.
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.
☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.
☀️ 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.
☀️ 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 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.
