Longtime readers, and followers of the MAOS vs. Lauderdale Lakes battle will recognize the following crapola.
From: Barbara Price, Coconut Creek City Clerk
Mr. Stevens, attached is a letter detailing your completed public records requests as of this date.
Police Case No. CK1 000011919
2 Hours of officer’s time to replicate discs @ $5 per quarter hour
12 Discs of dashboard video @ $9.00 per disc
Total Cost: $108.00
Can you explain to me the cost of $9.00 per disc for the dashboard video?
Mr. Stevens, the Police Department customarily charges $9.00 for a disc produced by the Police Department that contains archived files. In actuality, I have been informed that this portion of your request was, in fact, more labor intensive than the amount we have charged.
As you well know, FS 119 allows you to charge for the ACTUAL COST of the medium. In what universe does a blank CD/DVD cost $9.00? Just because they charge $9.00, doesn’t mean they’re following FS 119. Just means they’re charging $9.00 for a blank CD/DVD.
We’ve filed an OIG/SAO complaint on this matter.
