Cash, personal check on a local bank, money order, or certified check shall be paid prior to the delivery of the materials. Checks, money orders, or certified checks shall be made payable to Taylor County Supervisor of Elections.
Pursuant to Florida Statues, 119.07(4)(d): “If the nature or volume of public records requested to be inspected or copied pursuant to this subsection is such as to require extensive use of information technology resources or extensive clerical or supervisory assistance by personnel of the agency involved, or both, the agency may charge, in addition to the actual cost of duplication, a special service charge, which shall be reasonable and shall be based on the cost incurred for such extensive use of information technology resources or the labor cost of the personnel providing the service that is actually incurred by the agency or attributable to the agency for the clerical and supervisory assistance required, or both.”
The Supervisor of Elections adopts the policy that the hourly labor cost charged will be equivalent to that of the lowest paid SOE employee hourly rate. Then the hourly labor cost will be charged by the hourly rate of the staff person performing the work. An approximate amount of the additional charges, including the cost of duplication, will be given prior to being inspected or copied. Depending on the total cost, a deposit may be required which will be determined by the custodian of records.
