Costs set by Law. Documents which are required to be prepared and sold for a specific fee under Michigan or federal law shall be sold in accordance with the applicable Michigan or federal law.
The FOIA Coordinator is authorized to establish such other fees and charges in situations not covered by this policy. TCHC may require a deposit from the person requesting the public record or series of public records if the fees will exceed $50.00 as determined by a good faith estimate prepared by the FOIA Coordinator. The deposit shall not exceed one-half of the total fee for the request.
A copy of a public record shall be furnished without charge for the first $20.00 of the fee for such request if the individual requesting such information submits an affidavit demonstrating that the individual is receiving public assistance, or if not receiving public assistance, is unable to pay the cost because of indigence consistent with the provisions of FOIA.
