Judge shreds Hoboken's 75 cents-per-copy fee

In a decision that may have statewide ramifications, State Superior Court Judge Carmen Messano struck down the rates that Hoboken charges to copy routine public documents.  Hoboken's 75 cent a page fee is not inline with "real costs" considering that local copy shops charge 6 cents per page.

Although New Jersey State Law N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5 allows charges up to 75 cents per page for the first 10 pages to copy routine public documents, the judge ruled that Hoboken's fees should be more inline with real costs.

The City will now try to determine the actual costs for copying pages and move to amend the City ordinance.
