  • An additional $0.05 cents for each two-sided copy; and
  • For all other copies, the actual cost of duplication of the public record.
  • $1.00 shall be charged for providing a certified copy of the requested record.

Please note: If the nature or volume of the public records requested to be inspected or copied pursuant to this subsection is such as to require extensive use of information technology resources or extensive clerical or supervisory assistance by personnel of the City, or both, the City shall charge, in addition to the actual cost of duplication, a special service charge, which shall be reasonable and shall be based on the cost incurred for such extensive use of information technology resources or the labor cost of the personnel providing the service that is actually incurred by the City or attributable to the City for the clerical and supervisory assistance required, or both. A request that requires more than 15 minutes of information technology resources or clerical time shall be deemed to be extensive for the purpose of this section. The estimated cost of extensive research and copying must be paid in advance; any differences will be collected or refunded when the material is picked up.
