(1) Custodian of Records. Under the Open Records Act, the person to whom a request for inspection should be directed is the custodian of records. See Colo. Rev. Stat. § 24-72-203(1)(a). The first step, then, is to determine where the records are located and who has custody of them.
(2) Request for Inspection.
(a) Requests for inspection may be either written or oral. A written request may be made in advance; an oral request may be made to the custodian at the place where the records are kept.
