Open Records Policy pursuant to Section 24-72-205, C.R.S. The District’s research and retrieval fee is $20.00 per hour.
A person granted the right to inspect District records may also be furnished copies requested at twenty-five cents ($.25) per standard page. The charge for providing a copy, printout, or photograph of a public record in a format other than a standard page will be assessed at the actual cost of production.
Additionally, in those cases where the location or existence of specific documents must be researched, the documents must be retrieved, sorted, or reviewed for applicability to the request. Such a process requires more than one hour of staff time, and the Custodian may charge a research and retrieval fee not to exceed twenty dollars ($20.00) per hour.
The Custodian will not impose a charge for the first hour expended concerning the research and retrieval of public records.
The District may require a deposit to cover the estimated cost to produce such records, including the cost of the copies and the research and retrieval fee, before commencing work to produce such records. Payment of any actual costs exceeding the deposit must be made when releasing the final work product or copies.
