Request: Did the Mandan Progress Organization violate the open records law with its estimate of charges associated with a records request?

Conclusion: A public entity is allowed to charge $25 per hour, excluding the initial hour, for locating records, and may require payment of the estimated charges before locating, redacting, making, or mailing the requested records. The Mandan Progress Organization’s estimate was based on legally allowable charges.
