Archuleta County Commissioners
P.O. Box 1507
Pagosa Springs, CO 81147 (Send Certified mail, return receipt requested).


Dear Commissioners:

It has come to my attention that our county is way over budget. $2.8 million over, and this is unacceptable. We expect our elected officials to serve the Public Interest, and protect our financial interests.

I am requesting documents under the COLORADO OPEN RECORD ACT (CORA) regarding the following: (Please keep in mind that failure to respond within 30 days, or supplying incomplete, misleading, or errant responses may be punishable under CRS 24-72-201 et seq. by a $100.00 fine, 90 days in jail, or both). If this office is not the source for this information, please forward this document to the correct county office, or notify me in writing.

  1. Please provide documentation showing legal requirements for Archuleta County audits, if any.

  2. Please provide documentation showing authority for Archuleta County to violate this legal audit requirement, if any.

  3. Please provide documentation for county offices, to include positions held, income level for elected officials, and job description for each official.

  4. Please provide documentation showing legal authority for elected official position and justification for said office for proper functioning of county business.

  5. Please provide documentation showing job performance evaluations on ALL elected officials, names of officials, daily activities required by officials, and performance achieved by official.

  6. Please provide documentation showing job performance evaluations on ALL county employees, names of employees, daily activities required by employee's job, and performance achieved by employee.

I will pay for reasonable document copy costs, if required by law, up to $10. If costs exceed this amount, please send me an itemized charge for copies.

Thank you for your speedy response in helping me to understand my legal and constitutional rights on this issue.
