C.R.S. Section 37-85-106

  • testimony
  • maximum rates


The board of county commissioners may adjourn or postpone any hearing from time to time as may be found necessary or for the convenience of parties or of public business. It shall hear and examine all legal testimony or proofs offered by any party interested concerning the original cost and present value of works and structure of such ditch, canal, conduit, or reservoir, the cost and expense of maintaining and operating the same, and all matters which may affect the establishing of a reasonable maximum rate of compensation for water to be furnished and delivered therefrom. It may issue subpoenas for witnesses, which subpoenas shall be served by the sheriff of the county, who shall receive the lawful fees for all such service; and said board may also issue a subpoena for the production of all books and papers required for evidence before it.


Upon hearing and considering all the evidence and facts and matters involved in the case, said board of county commissioners shall enter an order describing the ditch, canal, conduit, reservoir, or other work in question with sufficient certainty and fixing a just and reasonable maximum rate of compensation for water to be thereafter delivered from such ditch or other work within the county in which such board of county commissioners acts, and such rate shall not be changed within two years from the time when it is so fixed, unless upon good cause shown. The district court of the proper county in case of refusal to obey the subpoena of the board of county commissioners may compel obedience thereto or punish for refusal to obey, after hearing, as in cases of attachment, for contempt of such district court.
