Hi Diedra,

Thank you for your response. I have a few follow-up questions. Can you please provide a breakdown of how those costs were calculated such as the number of copies, labor hours, etc that make up that cost? Also, are these records going to be provided electronically, and if so, in what format? Picking them up in-person is not an option for me.

Best,

Mike Ziegler

Hi Diedra,

I appreciate your follow up. I understand the costs includes those activities, but I am requesting a breakdown of how those costs are being calculated. This is within the sunshine law statute. To quote the MO attorney general website on the sunshine law, “The requestor may wish to ask for a breakdown of the costs associated with the request to determine how the public governmental body arrived at the final charge.”

It is explained in full in the first FAQ at this link: https://www.ago.mo.gov/missouri-law/sunshine-law/sunshine-law-faqs

Thank you for your assistance.

Best,

Mike Ziegler
