What will my request cost?
The cost of your request depends on several factors: the types of records you are requesting; the complexity of your request; and the amount of research/staff time required to procure the information. Costs could range anywhere from no charge for a single page document to up to thousands of dollars for an extensive network email search. Please see the City of Portland's Standard Fees
for Public Records Requests for a list of common charges. If fees are expected to exceed $25.00, you will be given a cost estimate soon after you make your request.
