The Freedom of Information Officer is given the authority to grant a waiver or reduction of fees for copying records if the requestor’s stated purpose is to obtain information regarding the health, safety, and welfare of the general public and is not for the principal purpose of personal or commercial benefit.
In determining the amount of any such waiver or fee reduction, the village will also consider the number of records requested and the actual costs of copying.

(C) For each request form filed, citizens shall be furnished with the first 50 pages of standard, black and white copies at no charge. Fees will not be waived for the first 50 pages of colored copies or copies exceeding 11" x 14" in area, unless a waiver or fee reduction is granted by the Freedom of Information Officer as a means of furthering the public interest.
(D) Fees to copy blueprints, oversized documents, pamphlets, manuals and any other records which are to be copied by an outside service shall be based on the actual costs incurred by the Village. Information regarding these fees will be provided to the requestor before copying. Additional fees for accident records may apply, as allowable by law.
