I will ship flash drive (USB), once you have provided a check number for said invoice.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Hello,

Regarding the fee for you "services," could you please provide the statutory authority for levying this fee?

Section 551.022 of the Government Code mandates that recording of minutes be available to the public on request. I believe it is impermissible for a government official to levy a fee for a "service" that is actually an obligation under state law. As previously stated, I am willing to pay the direct cost of the storage media and postage.

Should you disagree but are unable to provide the legal basis for the fee, the next step would be to escalate this to the Texas Attorney General's Office.

Thank you for your consideration.
