The appropriate City Department will invoice you a cost estimate for searching, reviewing and/or duplicating your nonexempt public records request. You will also be charged the cost of mailing if applicable. Upon receipt of this invoice, please either accept or reject it by indicating your desire to pay the invoiced fee. Invoiced charges for any staff time or contractual services will be at the pay scale for the lowest level City employee or City contractor competent to respond to your request. Photocopies of the requested public records are billed at $ 0.15 per page; certified copies are $1.50 each. The Mississippi Public Records Act of 1983 and the City’s Public Records Access Policy require you to pay this fee prior to the release of requested nonexempt public records.
