Only one fee shall be charged for a record check involving a particular name and any reasonable derivation or other spelling of that name. However, a separate record check fee will be charged for each and every alias which is dissimilar to the original name submitted.

No charge shall be made for checking municipal court records if requested by an employee of a governmental agency.

Any request for copies of documents shall be billed separately above and beyond any fee charged as set forth herein.
