If applied to the initial installment, additional flat fees shall not be charged for subsequent installments. 

Before beginning to copy records, a deposit or up to 10% of the estimated cost of copying will be required if the copy cost exceeds $25.00. An estimate of the copy costs will be provided to the requester so that they have the opportunity to decline having the copies reproduced. The Public Records Officer may also require the payment of the remainder of the copying costs before providing all records, or the payment of the costs of copying an installment before providing that installment.
