(a) The staff or volunteers necessary to complete a response to the public records request are unavailable, on leave, or are not scheduled to work; or
(b) Compliance would demonstrably impede the commission's ability to perform other necessary services; or
(c) Of the volume of public records requests being simultaneously processed by the commission.
(2) The commission shall make reasonable efforts to communicate to the requester the allowable reason(s) the commission may not be able to comply or has not complied with the time periods established in this division, and shall, as soon as practicable and without unreasonable delay, acknowledge a public records request and complete the response to the request.
(3) Once the commission has informed the requester of the estimated fee calculated in accordance with this 605-040-0050, the time periods set forth in this division are suspended until the requester has paid the fee, or the fee has been waived by the commission pursuant to 605-040-0060, or the fee otherwise has been ordered waived. The commission shall close the request if the requester fails to pay the fee within 60 days of the date on which the commission informed the requester of the fee, or the requester fails to pay the fee within 60 days of the date on which the commission informed the requester of its denial of the fee waiver.
