Question:

Is there a charge for a FOIA Request?
Answer:

If receiving paper copies of request, the first fifty (50) 8 ½ X 11 inch black and white copies are available at no charge and fifteen 15 cents per page thereafter. 

Larger documents, maps, recordings, and other types of records are available at the cost of reproduction. 

If records are to be mailed, requester will be responsible for postage costs. 

If the specific purpose for the request is in the public interest, the City may reduce or waive the reproduction fees.
