Open records requests

To pay for the cost of processing a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request, the agency custodian could 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 could 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.
