INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILING RECORDS REQUESTS PURSUANT TO THE COLORADO OPEN RECORDS ACT (CORA) 1. Provide a brief, but specific description of the documents or information requested noting the date of issuance and location of the document(s), if known. A request that is broad, vague or too voluminous may cause a delay in the time Rio Blanco County can produce the records. If needed, please attach an additional page to list these items in detail. 2. Requests may be submitted to: Rio Blanco County Attorney’s Office, 200 Main Street, Suite 500, Meeker, CO 81641; (970) 8789681 (facsimile) or the request may be submitted directly to the appropriate department as stated in the Rio Blanco County CORA Policy Resolution 201218.

Upon receipt of the request, the Requestor will be notified and a time for review and inspection of the records will be scheduled. Reviews will take place during regular business hours in the applicable record custodian’s office, unless another location for the review is designated by the Rio Blanco County Attorney’s Office or the record’s custodian. 5. Although inspection of documents is normally free of charge, actual costs, including staff time, will be charged. Any fees charged in this policy will include the cost of redacting documents to excise legally privileged material. You will be notified in advance of any required fees. The County does not accept credit cards and cannot bill for services. Payment in the form of cash or check made payable to the Rio Blanco County Treasurer must be made in advance. County employees will not commence working on your request without your prior approval and advance payment. 6. In the event requestor does not make arrangements for a review of documents, fails to appear for the review, fails to prepay costs within ten working days of notification of the availability of records, the request will be deemed closed.
