Are there any fees or special charges for Public Records Requests?
The Public Records Act allows the City to collect a “per copy” fee or the actual cost for materials and supplies used to duplicate records. In accordance with Florida Statutes 119.07(4)(d), the City may collect a reasonable service charge when a request to inspect or copy public records requires the extensive use of technology resources and/or the extensive use of clerical or supervisory assistance. A service charge for the extensive use of City resources will be imposed if a request to inspect or copy public records takes more than 30 minutes to locate, review and/or redact exempt information, and copy the requested public records.
