LAWS, JOURNALS AND PUBLIC INFORMATION - RECORDS OPEN TO PUBLIC - ABSTRACTS OR COPIES OF RECORDS; FEES. January 13, 1987.
The Kansas Open Records Act provides that public agencies may charge reasonable fees for photocopying public records. Fees are reasonable if they do not exceed that actual cost, or costs directly incurred, in providing copies. The twenty cents per page fee charged by Unified School District No. 431 is not unreasonable as it reflects the actual costs incurred in furnishing copies of public records. Cited herein: K.S.A. 45-216; 45-219; 5 U.S.C. Section 552.
