1-27-1.2 Fees for specialized service.
Fees for specialized service.
If a custodian of a public record of a county,
municipality, political subdivision, or tax-supported district provides to a member of the public, upon
request, a copy of the public record, a reasonable fee may be charged for any specialized service.
Such fee may include a reasonable amount representing a portion of the amortization of the cost of
computer equipment, including software, necessarily added in order to provide such specialized
service. This section does not require a governmental entity to acquire computer capability to
generate public records in a new or different form if that new form would require additional
computer equipment or software not already possessed by the governmental entity.
No fee may be charged for the electronic transfer of any minutes of open meeting actions of a
political subdivision, board or agency of a political subdivision, or the governing board of an agency
that levies property taxes that were recorded in the last three years.
