Public Information

The City has many documents available online.

The Public Information Act

Texas Government Code, Chapter 552 gives you the right to access government records; we are not allowed to ask why you want them. While all government information is presumed to be available to the public, certain exceptions may apply. Governmental bodies are required to promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory, or by judicial decision, or information for which an exception to disclosure has not been sought.

Procedures To Obtain Information

  1. Submit an Open Records Request by mail, fax, email or in writing in person.
  2. Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable us to accurately identify and locate the information you requested. You will be charged a reasonable copy fee if you need copies.
  3. We may ask you to clarify the type or amount of information requested. Please bear with us – while electronic records exist for many documents created in the past few years, older records are stored away in boxes, and searching them has to be done between normal daily activities.
