If your request is approved it will take some time to compile the records and make the copies requested, but they will normally be available within seven business days pursuant to statute. If a document or copy, which has been requested, is not a public record pursuant to statute or if it cannot be provided within seven business days, you will be provided with a response with that information within the seven business days. Fees for copying public records are established by statute as follows: first page to tenth page, $0.75 per page; eleventh page to twentieth page, $0.50 per page; all pages over twenty, $0.25 per page. Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47: IA-5c., this office may impose a reasonable special service charge if the nature, format, manner of collation, or volume of a government record is such that it cannot be reproduced by ordinary document copying equipment in ordinary business size or involves an extraordinary expenditure of time and effort to accommodate your request.
