For guidance regarding your rights as a requestor and the public information procedures adopted by this governmental body, you may review the governmental body’s notice required under section 552.205 of the Government Code. You can find additional Public Information Act resources on the Office of the Attorney General's website http://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/open-government
The Texas Public Information Act prohibits a government body from inquiring into a requestor's reason or motive for requesting information. The Act permits a governmental body to establish proper identification (Photo ID is required prior to record release.)
A record request is filled in the course of a normal city business day and not necessarily "upon demand," depending upon the scope of the record request and record availability and research time.
Cost for a record varies upon scope of request and is payable prior to pickup/mailing. If the request is extensive, PREPAYMENT MAY APPLY.
Please Note: If the information requested is unclear or if a large amount of information is requested you may be contacted to discuss clarifying or narrowing your request. There may be charges associated with production of the requested information. https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/open-government/governmental-bodies/charges-public-information

Under the Public Information Act, some categories of information do not have to be released. Exceptions to disclosure fall into two general categories: 1) mandatory exceptions that make information confidential and require a governmental body to withhold information, and 2) discretionary exceptions that allow but do not require a governmental body to withhold information. You may find information about mandatory and discretionary exceptions at https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/open-government/members-public/confidential-information-under-public-information-act
In most instances, a governmental body is required to request a decision from the Attorney General in order to withhold information from a requestor. However, a requestor may permit a governmental body to redact information without requesting an Attorney General decision.
You are not required to agree to the redaction of any information responsive to your request but doing so may streamline the handling of your request. If you agree to redactions in this request, then you may request the redacted information in a future information request.
Do you agree to the redaction of information that is subject to mandatory exceptions, provided such redactions are clearly labeled on the information you receive?
Do you agree to the redaction of information that is subject to discretionary exceptions, provided such redactions are clearly labeled on the information you receive?
Specify exactly what record(s) you are requesting.
