Elected Officials may develop their own policies and procedure regarding public records in their custody; however, to the extent that the County has custody of any public records of an Elected Official the County shall, in consultation with the Elected Official, meet any requirement of the Open Records Act as it may apply to documents in the County’s possession.
If the public record(s) requested are not in the custody or control of the person to whom the application is made, such person shall “forthwith” notify the applicant of this fact, in writing if requested by the applicant. In such notification, the person shall state in detail to the best of the person’s knowledge and belief the reason for the absence of the record(s) from the person’s custody or control, the location of the records, and what person would have custody or control of the record(s). C.R.S. 24-72-203(2)(a)
