Henderson Police Department fees to change

The Henderson City Council voted Tuesday to change some police service fees.

For instance, the Henderson Police Department now will charge 10 cents a page for accident reports. The department previously charged a flat $5 fee for such reports.

The Police Department previously charged a minimum of $40 for audio tape reproduction and $60 for a CD with digital photos, but it now will charge $1 for each tape or CD.

Individual prints previously ranged in price from $4 to $12, but the department now will charge 10 cents for each black-and-white photo and 20 cents for each color photo.

The Police Department’s research fee, currently a flat fee of $6, will increase to $40 an hour for administrative research and $65 an hour for professional research.

City spokeswoman Kathy Blaha said the police service fees were changed to comply with state and local fee schedules.

Blaha said the changes are part of an ongoing effort by the city attorney’s office to ensure that language in the Henderson Municipal Code is clear and conforms with state law. Several other minor code changes were made Tuesday.
