Global Relay enables citizens to view City Council email on-demand
The City's Global Relay system makes City Council email viewable on-demand from any location. The system is on a 24-hour delay, and is updated daily (with the exception of weekends and holidays).
To access the Loveland City Council email archive, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . You will receive an automatic reply with the current user name, password and instructions.
Most communications will be accessible to anyone via Global Relay’s email database that can be tapped from any internet-connected computer or handheld device.
Exceptions to access, under provisions of the Colorado Open Records Act, might shield some messages for reasons outlined in the state law. Examples include communication about real estate transactions, negotiations that involve attorney-client privilege and certain personnel issues.
Content of emails sent by citizens to Council members can be kept confidential by entering the word “private” in the subject line. However, email addresses of senders cannot be held confidential and will be publicly visible.
Members of the public may request access to email content labeled “restricted” under provisions of the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA). Requests, as all others under the law’s provisions, will be evaluated to determine whether content is “privileged,” and therefor would remain shielded. Requestors then would be provided with specific reasons for withholding the content.
