Durango officials say new technology for photographing public records is costing them money

From The Republic:  DURANGO, Colorado — Durango officials are asking the City Council to ban people from photographing public records to save money, forcing city workers to search out documents without covering their expenses.

New technology is allowing people with smartphones and tablets to photograph the official documents they request, and not ask for copies to be made. Those records can take city workers days to find and make available, which is required by Colorado open record laws.
