The city of Lakewood is committed to providing the public with convenient access to information about city operations.

The City Clerk’s Office is the official contact for requesting public records not provided on this website. The city provides public records according to the Colorado Open Records Act requirements.

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the City Clerk’s Office has issued an Emergency Rule(PDF, 1MB) regarding CORA (Colorado Open Records Act) requests.  We strive to fulfill CORA request within three business days, however during the health pandemic, many of our city staff are working remotely which makes many documents inaccessible.  The City Clerk’s Office may need to invoke the extenuating circumstances exception which would allow for up to 10 business days to respond to CORA requests.  Please be assured we will do everything we can to fulfill your CORA request as quickly as reasonably possible. Your understanding and patience is very much appreciated.
