Upcoming Meetings

Open Records

On September 7, 2010, the Board of County Commissioners formally adopted guidelines for handling requests for public records to include the wait time for inspection of records and the county’s ability to charge fees for staff time spent in researching and retrieving public records in response to a request. 

The uniform procedure for handling requests for public records, deemed modified by additional or new language added to the Colorado Public Records Act C.R.S. 24-72-201 et seq, simplifies the process for County personnel and provides more efficient responses to the public.
