Pursuant to the Missouri Sunshine Law, I request an electronic copy of City of Ferguson employee payroll records for the current fiscal (Please let me know if calendar year is a better format).
I request records that contain, but are not necessarily limited to, the following information: Name, department, position or job title, part-time or full-time status, projected annual salary, hire date.
If for any reason you deny any portion of the request, please cite the specific exemption under state law allowing such information to be withheld. Also, if there is a data field that uses codes instead of descriptions (i.e. numeric codes for departments, instead of the department names), please provide a file that displays what the codes represent.
Because we are making this request in the public interest and will not be using these records for commercial gain, I request that any fees that may be associated with this request be waived. If there is a cost associated with completing this request, please inform me of the cost before completing the request so that I may authorize the expense.
I request that the records be emailed to me in the form of an Excel, Access, CSV or .txt file. Please let me know if none of these formats are possible.
If any additional information or clarification is required, please call or email me, instead of using standard mail, so as to expedite the process. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
