Public Records

What is Public Information?

Public Information is any information that is collected, maintained, or assembled by or for a governmental entity, regardless of format.

The Texas Public Information Handbook, will inform you of everything you need to know about accessing governmental records.


How do I obtain Public Information?

Requests must include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the City to accurately identify and locate the information requested. The Act requires the City to provide copies of existing records, but does not require the City to create records that do not now exist, do any research, or answer any questions.

The request should also include the requestor's contact information: name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. It is important that the contact information provided is accurate to avoid delays. In some cases, the City may need to contact the requestor to clarify the request. If we need to contact to verify information the 10 days start over.

Large, time-consuming requests may require the City to contact the requestor and confirm applicable charges. An advanced deposit may be required. For more information on the Act, you may visit any of the links listed at the bottom of the page.
