Are the Routt County Clerk's concerns about a new law reducing the charge for copying public records to no more than 25 cents per page justified?

A person can take a document to Kinko's and copy it for 5 cents, but the County Clerk has to organize, store, retrieve and refile the documents as well as copying them. That represents a significantly higher cost. I believe the person who requests the copy should pay these costs; instead, the County Clerk is forced to spread the cost to all of us. Travesty.

I think that 20 cents profit per copy is quite capable of covering the additional expense for the "over worked office personel" of the county

pc, please.... they have had to do all that for over a century now that is there job, that is their function, if anybody could set up a effiecient fair but profitable copy system it would be them, they have a monopoly therefore go on to gouge the public with this profit center. Give me a break in their history it has only been the past 30 years where the public needed these copies for one reason or another. There has to be a better way...........it's 2007 not 1967...........
