Notice Regarding COVID-19 (the “Novel Coronavirus”) and Court Operations:

The courts and probation department provide important and essential services to the public and we will endeavor to maintain normal operations to the fullest extent possible. We understand there is concern about COVID-19 and the 7th Judicial District is requesting that you PLEASE NOT COME TO THE COURTHOUSE, OR PROBATION OFFICE if: (1) you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (“Novel Coronavirus”) and you have not completed the required public health mandated isolation; (2) you have been in direct contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past fourteen days; (3) you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or any other respiratory illness symptoms. Some individuals are in a high-risk group.  These include those over 65 years of age or persons who have an underlying medical condition which increases their risk if they are exposed to the virus. This would also include any individual that may be in a household with any individual who may have underlying medical conditions which would increase the risk of being exposed.  If you believe you are in any of these groups,  please call the clerk’s office using the contact information below to request to reschedule your court date or request to appear by telephone if you are not represented by an attorney, or contact your attorney to file a request for a continuance or a telephone appearance. If you are subpoenaed as a witness in a case, please contact the attorney or party issuing the subpoena to explain the circumstances and discuss the options available. If you are summoned to report for jury duty, please contact the jury commissioner at (970) 252-4302 to reschedule your jury service. Please call to reschedule appointments with the probation department at (970) 369-3320.

The San Miguel Combined Courts (District and County) are located in the historic San Miguel County Courthouse at 305 West Colorado Avenue (Main Street), in Telluride, Colorado. The original San Miguel County Courthouse was built in 1885-1886, and was located on the southeast corner of Main and Fir Streets. Fire destroyed the building on March 9, 1887. Bricks were salvaged to rebuild the present courthouse. The courthouse is unique as it is a two story red brick structure, featuring a tower clock. On the first floor of the courthouse you will find the Clerk and Recorder's office, the District Attorney's Office and the County Treasurer's Office. On the second floor you will find the Combined Court Clerk's Office, a District Probation Office and the courtrooms. The courthouse has installed a wheelchair lift at the rear door to accommodate the handicapped.

Trial Court personnel consists of the Clerk of Court, two Court Judicial Asstistants and a County Court Judge. A Spanish interpreter is also retained by the Courts to assist in official Court proceedings on regular County Court days (Tuesdays) and whenever needed in District Court matters. The District Court Judges travel to Telluride from the out-laying counties of Gunnison, Delta and Montrose.

Numerous legal forms may be purchased from the Clerk's office and some are available online by visiting the Forms section on the Colorado Courts Web Site. Informative brochures are provided for the public on subject matters related to court functions at the clerk's office.

Parking is at a premium in this community. Telluride does have paid parking on Colorado Avenue (Main Street). Other parking is available on side streets, but you should be sure to read the street signage and know what day and date it is before parking. This is especially true during the peak of ski and tourist seasons. Violators will be ticketed and towed.
