C. 
Special service charges.
(1) 
Where the nature, format, manner of collation or volume of printed matter is such that it cannot be reproduced by ordinary document-copying equipment in ordinary business size or where such record requires an extraordinary expenditure of time and effort to accommodate a request for inspection or copying of documents, a special service charge shall be imposed, in addition to the actual costs of duplicating the record. A special service charge will also be applied when the custodian changes the medium in which the record is normally kept in order to comply with the request.
(2) 
The special service charge shall be paid to the Borough of Mendham at the following rates:
(a) 
For all services performed by employees of the Borough, the actual hourly rate of compensation for each clerical and supervisory employee performing the service plus the copying or reproduction cost and actual mailing cost, when applicable.
(b) 
For all services performed by the Borough's paid professional consultants, the rate paid by the Borough for said services.
(c) 
The requestor shall have the opportunity to review and object to the special service charge prior to the production of documents.
D. 
Postage will be added to the fee for records requested by mail.
E. 
All fees must be paid prior to the release of any copies. The custodian of the records may require a deposit of all or part of the fee prior to copying or producing any documents for inspection where it is estimated that the records requested will cost in excess of $5 to reproduce.
F. 
For reasons of security, the use of a floppy disk, CD, videotape or audiotape provided by the requestor is prohibited. All electronic reproduction materials shall be supplied by the Borough of Mendham.
G. 
If the request for access to a government record would substantially disrupt municipal operations, the custodian of the records may deny access to the record after attempting to reach a reasonable solution with the requestor that accommodates the interests of the requestor and the municipality.
H. 
In the event that the requestor of the documents objects to any charges permitted by this article and no resolution of the objection may be reasonably accomplished, the custodian of records shall not incur any charges on behalf of the Borough to fulfill the document request.
I. 
Nothing in this section or any other ordinance of the Borough shall be construed as requiring the Borough of Mendham to furnish copies of any privileged documents or other documents which have been determined to be exempt from the requirements of the Open Public Records Act[1] or otherwise nondisclosable in accordance with any provision of law.
