Florida law authorizes municipalities to recoup their costs of providing public records. If the public record request requires more than fifteen (15) minutes of employee time (including the time to gather, copy, scan and/or print the requested documents, or redact information exempted by Florida Statutes, if necessary), the requester will be charged for that time at the lowest hourly rate of the class of employee(s) involved. For physical copies of requested documents, there will be a charge of $.15 per page for one-sided copies ($.20 per page for two-sided copies). If the City anticipates that there will be a significant cost to provide the requested public record, the City will provide an estimated cost for the public records. The requester must acknowledge the estimated costs and authorize the City to proceed before document production will begin. Once the request is complete, the requestor must pay the City before the documents will be provided.
There are some things that you can consider when you make a public records request that can decrease the response time and reduce production costs. • A significant amount of information is available on the City’s website. • Be specific; avoid overly broad requests. • Provide dates ranges of requested public records, especially on emails and correspondence.
The City responds to public records requests as quickly as possible. However, requests for a large number of documents, or requests that require significant staff time may result in a longer response time. The volume of public record requests may also slow the response time.

What is a labyrinth?
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the
imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path.
A labyrinth looks like a maze but is not. A maze is like a puzzle to be solved.
It has twists and turns and dead ends. You have to think and think and be

challenging. You can get lost in a maze.
A labyrinth, unlike a maze, has no dead ends. There is only one path, and

With a labyrinth you just trust that the path will lead you to where you need

The MUTCD contains criteria, or warrants, that define the minimum requirements for volume of vehicular or pedestrian traffic that are used to define the need for and appropriateness of a particular traffic control device. Warrants should be viewed as guidelines, not as absolute values. However, if no warrants are met, a traffic signal will not be installed. Satisfaction of a warrant is not a guarantee that a traffic signal is needed. The MUTCD states that proper engineering judgment should be exercised in making the final determination. More details about traffic signals is provided in the Information Brochures section of Traffic Operations
While adding a left turn phase can often improve safety and reduce delay, other solutions such as timing adjustments to improve gaps for left turns and geometric improvements to improve sight distance may be more appropriate. More details on left turn signals is provided in Information Brochures section of Traffic Operations.
