What Will it Cost to Obtain the Documents That I Seek?

Per Oregon Revised Statutes 192.324, Douglas County is entitled to recover its actual costs incurred in fulfilling your request. For copies of public documents, this may include both the cost of photocopying the documents and the staff time necessary to research, locate and copy them. For inspection requests, it may include the staff time necessary to locate the documents to make them available to you, as well as any required legal review. County documents come in a variety of sizes and may be retained in either paper or electronic format. Therefore, the cost of filling your request will depend on the type of document that you ask to inspect or copy.  Therefore, there could be a fee associated with inspection of documents, as well as copies of records either in print or electronically.
