Provides that if a public record is in an electronic format, a public agency (excluding ... the office of the county recorder) shall provide an electronic copy or a paper copy, at the option of the person making the request for a public record. Provides that a search fee collected by a department, agency, or office of a county, city, town, or township shall be deposited in the general fund of the county, city, town, or township.
