Charging for data

State law allows the county to charge for access to data. The county will charge for data requests that exceed $50.00, including cumulative requests from a single requester/entity within 30 days, except when specific formats are required to produce your data.

You will be notified of any costs related to your data request.

For large requests, you may be asked to make half the payment prior to the county processing your request. Full payment is required prior to the data being released.

If you do not want to pay for the data, you can view the data at no charge.

If you would like to schedule a time to come in a view the responsive data during business hours, you can notify us of that in your request.

When you are not the subject of the data, the county can charge for:

  • The time an employee spends identifying and compiling responsive data,
  • The cost providing the data (e.g., electronically, US mail, USB, etc.), and
  • The cost of providing physical copies of the data, if physical copies are requested.

When you are the subject of the data, the county can charge for:

  • The actual cost of copying the responsive data.
