Open Records Request

The Office of the City Secretary is the administrative agency responsible for the care and maintenance of all City records. Pursuant to Local Government Code Section 552.234, requests must be in writing with certain guidelines met in order to trigger the City's obligations under the Public Information Act. Requests can be made ONLY by delivering a written request to the City Secretary or their designee by one of the following methods:

Your request must be for documents or other information that is already in existence. Governmental bodies are not required to answer questions, perform legal research, create new information in response to your public information request, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis; as such information is prepared in the future.

All requests for public information are treated uniformly, and a response will be issued within 10 business days. For more information, contact the City Secretary or view the Office of the Attorney General and the Public Information Act Website.
