Dear Ms. Smith,

Thank you for your response. Per your request I filled out and emailed you the proper documents for a Colorado Open Records Act Request on 1/29/2020. Neither the Colorado Open Records Act nor does the City of Cortez documentation or any City of Cortez policies state that a person's identity must be divulged to receive records. Can you please state the statute, rule, regulation, or court decision that requires CORA requesters reveal their identities? I am requesting this information per "The Formal Opinion of Ken Salazar Attorney General #01-1," question #3, which states:

"If the custodian denies you access to records, ask for a written statement explaining why he or she made that decision. The custodian's letter must tell you the legal basis for the custodian's decision, and give you reasons that will allow you to decide if you think the decision makes sense."

Thank you for your time. I look forward to your response and proceeding with my CORA request.

From: City Of Cortez FOIA

this has been forwarded to our City Attorney on 2/17/2020. He will be
responding to your request.

Ms. Smith,

I am writing to follow up again in regards to the CORA request that I submitted on January 22, 2020. I am still waiting on the records that were requested and a response from the City of Cortez attorney in regards to the denial of my request. As Ken Salazar Attorney General suggests in "The Formal Opinion of Ken Salazar Attorney General #01-1," question #3, which states:

"If the custodian denies you access to records, ask for a written statement explaining why he or she made that decision. The custodian's letter must tell you the legal basis for the custodian's decision, and give you reasons that will allow you to decide if you think the decision makes sense."

It would be much appreciated if this request could move forward in a timely manner. I look forward to a response soon.
