Requestors pay direct costs for each page printed in response to the PRA as well as postage and related services based on the agency's current rates. Although rates are subject to change, the current reimbursement rates (as of the date of approval of this policy) are as follows:
15 cents per page; all pages are one-sided.
Documents Saved to a Disk
69 cents per disk + the printing cost for each responsive page printed for transferring to the disk.
No charge for emailing; however, the requestor is charged for each responsive page printed and scanned for the email.
The LACDA reserves the right to charge for multiple copies being printed of the same document if it is required to make the document suitable for release to the requestor, such as in cases where redaction is needed on the original document, and a second copy is made to ensure confidential information is no longer visible. The LACDA reserves the right to waive copy fees if the total amount due is less than $5.00.
Requestors also pay the direct cost of any outside services, such as video or audio reproduction. There are no charges assessed for staff time, emails, or information provided by telephone.
Payments are made by check or money order to the “Los Angeles County Development Authority” and must be received by the LACDA before the requested copies are released.
