District Attorney Opinion May 30, 1997
Re: assessment of fees for reproduction of public records regularly kept in computer form.
It is imperative that the fees for such records requests are not arbitrarily set. Each fee must be supported by the actual cost of the materials and labor specifically incurred in reproducing the computer records. Please note that the county cannot charge for the use of hardware or software which is normally required or used for day-to-day operations; processing charges not specifically linked to the request; or maintenance and materials generally required for day-to-day operations.
