Public Information

The Texas Public Information Act (Texas Government Code, Chapter 552), gives you the right to access government records. All government information is presumed to be available to the public, although certain exceptions may apply. Governmental bodies shall release requested information as promptly as possible unless the information is exempt from disclosure under the Public Information Act.

The request must ask for records or information already in existence. The Act does not require a governmental body to create new information, do legal research, answer questions, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis.

​The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to the Office of the City Secretary. Upon receipt, the City will begin processing your request in the order received.
