Plain Copy Fee Increase Copy Fee IncreasePlain Copy Fee Increase<p>Dear Valued Customer,<br><br>Due to a significant increase over several years of toner cost and an increase in the state contract for office paper, we have found it necessary to increase our fee for plain copies. Although we would very much like to retain our current rate of $0.15 per page, it is no longer feasible to do so. Starting August 1, 2018, the fee for plain copies will increase to $0.25 per page.<br><br>Please feel free to speak to me directly about this rate increase should there be any concerns or questions at (828)-764-9342. </p><p> </p><p>Sincerely, </p><p>Stephanie A. Norman, MPA</p><p>Register of Deeds</p><p>Burke County <span aria-hidden="true"></span></p>
