However, that refers to a future search and not one that has already been carried out. Furthermore, it seems contrary to the law which states, according to the article, "Some state open records laws provide records for free or little cost, while others like Missouri can require fees that "result in the lowest charges for search, research and duplication."
Hiring a consulting company to do this will not result in the lowest charges; it will produce the highest charges.
'Other governments also have demanded spectacular fees. During the 2008 presidential campaign, for instance, news organizations asked for emails belonging to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential nominee.
The Anchorage Press said officials at first wanted $6,500 in search fees, leading the newspaper to withdraw its request. Thousands of pages of those emails were ultimately provided to news organizations for about $725 in copying charges.
funny how the right wingers are defending the govt charging people to tell us what they're doing. When Lois Lerner doesn't produce an email, Congress launches an investigation and the wing nuts flip out.
Oh... my... God. I tell ya, some people. Threads like this remind me that the human species should never be taken too seriously. The arguments in defense of the city charging fees this high are some of the most brainless, moronic, idiotic arguments I have seen regarding any subject in quite a long time. I swear, the only possible "reasonable" explanation is that there's a full moon and several people are feeling the need to be argumentative for argument's sake.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
