The monthly business meeting was moved to the 2nd Monday of the month.  You may have a copy of the minutes after this Monday coming, January 12th. Cost will be $25, includes labor to prepare minutes.

I responded…reiterating the post…and  inquired  for clarification the $25 fee… I was informed by a knowledgeable person the state does not allow price gouging for public information…if that was the intent…. it was not clear in the e-mail if the charge was for just the minutes…which is usually a few pages at a previous cost of a few dollars or for  all 3 items…

I am very upset that you chose to hang up on a customer…in clear violation of the LBTS-VFD-SOP.
If this e-mail had been provided as is required by your VFD-SOP…further attempts to reach you would not have been necessary.
I am told that per State statute a reasonable amount may be charged for copies.
If the charge for all 3 items is $25 dollars, that is acceptable.
If the charge is $25 for the minutes which will already be prepared,to be accepted by the VFD members, that presents a problem and the state would not look kindly on it.
Please inform me which is correct and the correct amount for each item I have requested.
Barbara Cole,customer/resident of LBTS

more to come…
