Summary:

The cost of having a FOIA request fulfilled depends on who is asking, Myrtle Beach, S.C., city officials discovered. The city queried the Federal Aviation Administration for documents about why it decided to put a new airport radar tower closer to the beach than expected. The FAA concluded the request was commercial in nature because it came from an attorney and estimated a cost of $18,500. A similar request from a different government agency was estimated to cost about $300.
