Open Records Requests

To pay for the cost of processing a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request, the agency custodian may charge for the time spent to research and respond to records requests under CORA. Following the Colorado Revised Statutes C.R.S. §24-72-205(6), agency custodians may charge $33 per hour for researching, retrieving and reviewing records. There is no charge for the first hour of research, retrieval and review of records.

For more information, visit the City’s Colorado Open Records Act webpage below.

Fee Increase!

Effective Friday, July 26, 2019, the City is increasing the CORA research, retrieval and review fee to $33.00. CORA permits the State Legislative Council to review and increase the CORA hourly fee every 5 years. The Legislative Council has increased the state fee to $33.58. For ease, the City will go to $33.00 per hour after the first free hour.
