Public Notice 

Notice is hereby given that the Board of County Commissioners will be attending a lunch meeting for the handling of day to day affairs on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at the Combined Courthouse, 865 North Park Street Cortez, CO.

The Colorado Legislature passed Senate Bill 19-191 this year. As originally introduced, this bill would require that all defendants who are arrested, have a hearing to set bond within 48 hours.  This requirement would have resulted in a need to hold court on weekends (on Saturday or Sunday and perhaps on both days) and holidays.   The actual bill passed struck this requirement but does require that the District Judge meet with people and provide information to the state Court Administrator.  The bill requires,

(2)(a) The chief judge of each judicial district shall develop, in conjunction with representatives from sheriffs’ offices, public defenders’ offices, district attorneys’ offices, county commissioners, and any other agencies determined necessary by the chief judge, a plan for setting bond for all in-custody defendants within forty-eight hours of arrest. In developing the plan, the county commissioners, sheriffs, and district attorneys shall provide the chief judge cost estimates of feasibility as well as any potential savings from the proposal, including jail bed costs and savings. In developing the plan, the chief judge shall evaluate the potential of utilizing new or existing audiovisual conference technology. In areas where a lack of broadband coverage makes audiovisual conferencing impossible or unreliable, the chief judge may evaluate the potential of utilizing telephonic hearings. No later than November 1, 2019, the state court administrator’s office shall report to the judiciary committees of the house of representatives and the Senate, or any successor committees, the plans for all twenty-two judicial districts, not including the Denver county court. The report must include an estimate of the resources necessary to implement this subsection (2) (a).

Any requirement to hold court on weekends and holidays will affect the finances of the Court’s the DA, the Sheriff, the Public Defender, and the County.
