The responsibility of the Public Information Officer and the communications department is to serve Clear Creek County, citizens, and the community by keeping it informed and up to date about happenings within the county. This can be in relation to the statutory duties of Elected Offices/Officials, in addition to the County’s outreach initiatives.
Communications support functions include writing press releases, responding to media requests, social media responsibilities, writing a County Newsletter, website upkeep, public outreach, and more.
The Colorado Open Records Act "CORA" requires that most public records be available to the public. A "public record" includes most writings made, maintained, or kept by our office. However, there are some exceptions concerning records made available under CORA.
Anyone can request public records in the possession of a government office. A person must request records directly from the appropriate government office or the custodian of the records (per the Colorado Secretary of State's office).
