Costs of providing copies of public records.

(1) Costs for paper copies. There is no fee for inspecting public records. A requestor may obtain standard black and white photocopies for five cents per page and color copies for ten cents per page. Before beginning to make the copies, the public records officer or designee may require a deposit of up to ten percent of the estimated costs of copying all the records selected by the requestor. The public records officer or designee may also require the payment of the remainder of the copying costs before providing all the records, or the payment of the costs of copying an installment, before providing that installment. The commission will not charge sales tax when it makes copies of public records. (2) Costs for electronic records. The cost of electronic copies of records shall be two dollars for information on a CD-ROM. The cost of scanning existing commission paper or other nonelectronic records is five cents per page. There will be no charge for e-mailing electronic records to a requestor, unless another cost applies such as a scanning fee. (3) Costs of mailing. The commission may also charge actual costs of mailing, including the cost of the shipping container. (4) Payment. Payment may be made by cash, check, or money order to the commission.
