Public Records Request

  1. Indicate the information you desire and/or list each requested document. Be as specific as possible, so as to expedite the search for the records and to minimize the cost to yourself.

  2. Use the above list to select the department(s) that you believe has (have) the record(s) you seek.

  3. If you ask to *view only*, appropriate City personnel will be scheduled to accompany you during the viewing. No personal scanning or photography of records is permitted. Also, not all documents are available in electronic format, and not all documents may be emailed.

  4. The City will respond to this request within three working days. Per the State of Colorado Open Records Act (C.R.S. 24-72-203), an extension of seven working days is permitted if the request is substantially large or if the records are maintained off-site. Within three business days of receiving this request, the City will notify you of all estimated costs and will inform you if there will be an extension. The City's default mode of communicating to you is via email. Per Colorado House Bill 14-1193, there is no charge for the first hour of research; the research fee is $30 per hour, after the first hour.

  5. I agree to pay any charges applicable to this request. [This request will be considered received when this form is complete and the deposit, if required, is paid. By clicking "I agree" you agree and acknowledge that 1) your application will not be "Signed" in the sense of a traditional paper document and 2) by signing in this alternate manner, you agree that your electronic signature is valid and binding upon you to the same force and effect as a handwritten signature.]

    Requests expected to have a total charge of $10.00 or more must be accompanied by a non-refundable deposit of one-half the estimated amount. This deposit will be credited toward the total fee, and the total fee shall be paid prior to release of the requested records. In the event the deposit amount exceeds the actual costs, the balance shall be refunded within 30 days. The City charges no fee for the first 10 letter- or legal-size copies in each calendar year.

  6. Payment is by check payable to City of Durango, or by cash between the hours of 7:30 and 3:30 at the Cashier's Window at City Hall on days that the City is open for business.
