The Colorado Open Records Act, (CORA) C.R.S. § 24-72-201 to 206, provides that all public records shall be open for inspection by any person at reasonable times, except as provided in part 2 or as otherwise specifically provided by law. It is the intention of St. Vrain Sanitation District to apply this Act in a uniform and reliable manner to comply with its provisions.
C.R.S. §24-72-203 requires making the documents available within three working days, or seven working days if extenuating circumstances exist. The statute provides a reasonableness standard for the time necessary to prepare and gather the records in both instances. St. Vrain Sanitation District three day period to respond corresponds with the time the request was received if during normal business hours, otherwise, the time begins at the beginning of the next business day. When a substantial request is made, the records custodian has the ability to extend the timeframes regarding the inspection of public records that are reasonably necessary for the protection of the records and necessary to prevent undue interference with the regular discharge of duties.

CORA permits the District to recover the cost of researching, retrieving and reviewing documents after the first hour. The cost is $25 per hour after the first hour. There is an additional charge of $0.25 per page for regular paper copies or an additional cost for the cost of other paper sizes.
