Public Information Requests

Your request must be in writing and addressed to the Media/Communications Specialist. Only written requests trigger a governmental body's obligations under the Public Information Act. Requests made by facsimile or electronic mail must be addressed to the Media/Communications Specialist in order to trigger an obligation under the Texas Public Information Act. 

  • Provide your full name and contact information including email/or fax (if available). 
  • Provide a heading for your correspondence that reads “Public Information Request.”
  • Provide a detailed, precise description of the nature and scope of information you are seeking.
  • Requests should be for documents or other information that is already in existence. 

 

Governmental bodies are not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis as such information is prepared in the future.
