Public Open Records Request
A governmental entity is allowed to charge 15 cents ($0.15) per 8 ½ x11 or 8 ½ x14 black and white copy and 50 cents ($0.50) per 8 ½ x11 or 8 ½ x14 color copy, unless the entity has done a cost analysis that proves that the entity’s cost to produce a copy exceeds the threshold amount set out above.
Tenn. Code Ann. Section 10-7-503(a)(7)(C) allows a records custodian to charge a requestor the “hourly wage of the employee(s) reasonably necessary to produce the requested information” after one (1) hour of work has been done by the custodian in producing the requested material.
