Dear Mr. Sinyangwe,

We have assembled a cost estimate based on your revised scope. Based on the number of documents we anticipate that the cost of the requested production will likely be in the range of $1,500 to $2,000, possibly by a fair margin. This is based upon a rough estimate of 8,000 pages, plus time, etc. Should you wish to proceed we would kindly request that you place a $1,500 deposit on file with the City. Should the actual cost fall below the estimate you will receive a refund. Should it exceed the deposit you will be required to make another deposit before production continues and documents are delivered. If you are interested in proceeding, please place a deposit on file within 14 days.

Thank you,

Beth Woodall
