A county recorder who makes available in their office a photocopying machine for use by the public may not charge the two dollar per page fee set forth in R.C. 317.32(I) where the photocopier is operated by the public without the assistance of the recorder of her staff. The recorder is, instead, subject to R.C. 149.43(B), which requires a public office to provide copies of public records "at cost."
