Roselle Park Borough Overcharging For Certain OPRA Requests

Under OPRA, public agencies may charge only for the actual cost of materials, except when a special service charge applies. For an OPRA response on CD, for example, generally an agency is allowed to charge no more than the cost of the CD.  The following article provides a good summary of the issue and cites the applicable statututory provision, NJSA 47:1A-5.b.  -NJFOG
