Hello Pamela,

Would it be possible to get a revised invoice? We are obtaining this information for publications on https://openaddresses.io/ and as such our request should fall under Pennsylvania's new Right to Know Law Act 3 of 2008 Ch 13 Sec. 1307 Fee Limitations 4ii which means fees should be based on the actual copy cost of the request.

Cheers,
Nick

From: Open Records

Attached you will find our fee schedule and see that the cost is $500.00

Hey Pamela,

Just to clarify, per Pennsylvania's new Right to Know Law Act 3 of 2008 Ch 13 Sec. 1307 Fee Limitations 4ii the $500 is the actual cost to the agency to duplicate these records? As I mentioned above I am requesting these records with the intent to publish them.

If this is the case could you please provide a breakdown of how the fee schedule will be used to duplicate the records? The current cost seems extremely high for something that should take no more than .5 to an hour of a single employees time to export out of any ArcGIS like software/database.

Cheers,
Nick
