APS Charges Fives Times As Much For Public Records

The Inspection of Public Records Act allows public entities to charge for the actual cost of xeroxing public records; not including labor.

APS charges five times as much as the city.

There is no ethical justification for charging many times what a copy actually costs; except to discourage people from asking for copies of public records.

Rigo Chavez when asked, declined to explain why APS copies cost fifty cents a page, or whose decision it was to charge that much.

He is the Director of "Communications" for the APS.
