Public Information Requests

The Public Information Act, Texas Government Code Chapter 552, gives you the right to access government records; and an officer for public information and the officer's agent may not ask why you want them. All government information is presumed to be available to the public.

Governmental bodies shall 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.

More detailed information on the Public Information Act may be found on the Office of Attorney General (OAG) web site:  https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/og/how-to-request-public-information. If you have questions regarding the Public Information Act, please call the OAG's Open Government hotline at (512) 478-OPEN (6736) or (877) OPEN-TEX (673-6839).

Submitting a Request:

Public information may be requested any business day during regular agency business hours. Business days do not include weekends, holidays, agency skeleton crew days, or any day the agency is closed.

Requests must be submitted in writing.  Only written requests trigger a governmental body's obligations under the Public Information Act. No specific form is required, but please include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable us to accurately identify and locate the information requested. Requests may be submitted as follows:
