Pursuant to State Statutes, many municipal records are open to the public and may be purchased at a cost as established by State Statute and the City’s Code of Ordinances; however, there may be additional charges if the nature or volume of the records requested requires extensive research or assistance by City staff.
Florida Statutes Chapter 119.07 - If the nature or volume of public records requested to be inspected, examined, 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.
Charges based on the combination of our Atlantic Beach Code of Ordinances and Florida State Statutes:
8 1/2 x 14 or smaller
10 cent per 1-sided page
15 cent per 2-sided page
Larger than 8 1/2 x 14
25 cents per 1-sided page
30 cents per 2-sided page
While we prefer to receive requests for copies of public records in writing, all requests will be filled regardless of how they are received. The City may ask questions about the request in order to respond to the request fully and in a timely manner.
