Costs of providing copies of public records.

The college may charge a reasonable fee for providing public records in response to requests under chapter 42.56 RCW received on or after July 23, 2017.
(1) Pursuant to RCW 42.56.120 (2)(b), Big Bend Community College finds that it is unduly burdensome for the college to calculate the actual costs to provide records due to insufficient resources to conduct a comprehensive study to determine actual costs and the interruption of essential college business that would result from conducting such a comprehensive study.
(2) The college reserves the right to charge fees to the requestor in accordance with the amounts provided in RCW 42.56.120. The college may also use any other method authorized by the Public Records Act for imposing charges for public records including, but not limited to, charging a flat fee, charging a customized service charge, or charging based on a contract, memorandum of understanding, or other agreement with a requestor.
(3) No fee shall be charged for the inspection of public records or locating public documents and making them available for copying, with the exception of the customized service charge allowed in RCW 42.56.120.
(4) The college may waive charges assessed for records when the public records officer determines collecting a fee is not cost effective.
(5) The public records officer may require an advance deposit of ten percent of the estimated fees when the copying fees for an installment or an entire request, or customized service charge, exceeds twenty-five dollars.
(6) All required fees must be paid in advance of release of the copies or an installment of copies, or in advance of when a deposit is required. The district will notify the requestor when payment is due.
(7) Payment should be made by check or money order to Big Bend Community College. The district prefers not to receive cash. For cash payments, it is within the public records officer's discretion to determine the denomination of bills and coins that will be accepted.
(8) The district will close a request when a requestor fails by the payment date to pay in the manner prescribed for records, an installment of records, or a required deposit.
