Re: Open Records Act Request
Dear Ms Holder:
Please consider this letter to be a request for records pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, C.R.S. § 24-72-201 et seq. (the “Act”).
Our organization is seeking records pertaining to the “contingency plan” concerning revised departmental budgets as presented or discussed by City Manager Roy Otto in the spring of 2007. Of course, we will pay reasonable costs for such information. This would include any paper or electronic communication that the Greeley Tribune recently referred to as involving “Greeley City Council proposing to cut…the police budget. Police Chief Jerry Garner and City Manager Roy Otto said…that all city departments had to have a contingency plan -- which included some cuts -- if city revenue dropped much more.”
Again, any communication pertaining to the “contingency plan”. We have also served this request upon the City of Greeley IT department to prevent any electronic communication from being deleted, as that would violate the intent and letter of the Colorado Open Records Act, C.R.S. § 24-72-201.
A copy of this request has been forwarded to all parties named herein, the State Attorney General, the local and state media, and likewise forwarded to our counsel. As the nature of this request goes to the heart of certain issues that Greeley residents may consider important in the short term, time is of the essence.
Please forward the information or contact me for any questions/clarification via the number(s) below as soon as possible.
Thanks very much.
