When must I pay the costs?

Douglas County may require that an estimate of the costs involved in fulfilling your request be prepaid before any work is performed in completing your request.

  • If you pay the estimate and the actual costs are more, you will be required to pay the difference.
  • If you pay the estimate and the actual cost is less, the difference will be refunded.

If the Department fulfilling your request does not require you to pay the costs in advance, the cost will be due before the documents are made available to you.
