CHARLESTOWN â€” At its Monday night meeting, the town council enacted a new policy to begin charging for large public records requests.
Because of The Access to Public Records Act (APRA), the public may â€śgain access to information amassed through the years by their cities and towns,â€ť according to the Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns.
The state also allows towns to charge a maximum rate of 15 cents per page and $15 per hour for such requests.
