Open Records Request
Open Records Cost
Under Georgia Law an agency may impost a reasonable charge for the search, redaction, and production or copying cost of records responsive to an open records request. The time expenditure cost will be calculated by using the hourly salary of the lowest paid employee qualified to conduct the research of an open records request, with no charge for the first quarter of employee time expended. Each photocopy will be 10 cents per page. Other fees may apply for different types of media and formats, mailing costs, certified copies, or other reasonable administrative costs. In some instances, the requestors' s agreement to pay costs or prepayment of costs may be required prior to the agency's search, retrieval, review, or production of the requested records. Payments may be made by cash or money order. Please make money order payable to the City of Walthourville.
