TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MAYOR TO STUDY AND PROPOSE A UNIFORM COUNTY PUBLIC RECORDS FEE STRUCTURE TO BE UTILIZED BY ALL COUNTY AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENTS

BODY
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County is required under the Public Records Law to make available for inspection and copying materials made or received in connection with official business which are used to perpetuate, communicate or formalize knowledge; and
WHEREAS, in order to comply with the Public Records Law, in many instances the cost associated with this compliance is significant; and
WHEREAS, along with making available public records, Miami-Dade County may expend significant resources and costs when determining whether certain records are exempt from disclosure under the Public Records Law; and
WHEREAS, under the Florida Public Records Law Miami-Dade County is entitled to impose fees for inspecting and copying public records; and
WHEREAS, currently there is no standardized policy and fee structure in place throughout the various agencies and departments of Miami-Dade County to deal with these obligations under the Public Records Law; and
WHEREAS, it is in the best interests of Miami-Dade County to have a uniform system in place setting a county-wide policy as to the criteria and amount of fees to be charged to inspect and copy public records,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Mayor is directed to study and propose a uniform County public records fee structure utilized by all County agencies and departments and report back to this Commission within 60 days from the adoption of this resolution.
