Cost of Records
  • You must respond to any written estimate of charges within 10 days of the date the governmental body sent it, or the request may be deemed withdrawn.
     
  • If estimated costs exceed $100 (or $50, if  a governmental body has fewer than 16 full time employees) the governmental body may require a bond, prepayment or deposit.
     
  • You may ask the governmental body to determine whether providing the information primarily benefits the general public, resulting in a waiver or reduction of charges.
     
  • Make a timely payment for all mutually agreed charges.  A governmental body can demand payment of overdue balances exceeding  $100, or obtain a security deposit, before processing additional requests from you.
