The Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to the records of government bodies at all levels in Colorado. The law was first enacted in 1969. Most records are public and open for inspection.
Open Records Requests
Elected Officials and Department Heads are the custodians of records maintained within their respective offices and departments. The County Commissioners’ Office retains records centrally maintained by Huerfano County, but Elected Officials may develop their own policies and procedures regarding public records in their custody.
You do not have to file a CORA request to receive information. Many documents are readily available to the public. County Staff are more than happy to help you access these filings without asking you to make a CORA request.
