Open Records Request
The Records Division accepts requests for public information records.

The Public Information Act
Texas law gives you the right to access certain government records. Most government information is presumed to be available to the public. Several exceptions apply to law enforcement information. Governmental bodies should promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law, statutes, family or health codes, or information for which an exception to disclosure has been sought.

To request records under the Public Information Act, you may obtain and submit the request form at the Records Division located at 1200 Highway 6 South or through the City Secretary’s Office, located at 2700 Town Center Boulevard North. Requests can also be submitted by mail, email, fax at 281-275-2293, or in person.

Fees for open records requests are determined by the Public Information Act. An estimate of cost will be provided before processing if the charge exceeds $40. Fees are generally $0.10 per page and $15 per hour of labor if applicable.

Rights of Requesters
You have the right to:

  • Prompt access to information that is not confidential or otherwise protected
  • Receive treatment equal to all other requesters, in accordance with ADA requirements
  • Receive certain kinds of information without exceptions, like the voting record of public officials or information related to receipt, expenditure or estimated need for public funds, and other items
  • Receive a statement of estimated charges, when charges exceed $40, in advance of work being started and opportunity to negotiate the request if charges are too high
  • Choose whether to inspect the requested information, receive copies or both
  • A waiver or reductions of charges if the government body determines that access to information primarily benefits the general public
  • Notice when the governmental body asks the Office of Attorney General for a ruling on whether the information can be withheld under one of the accepted exceptions
  • Lodge a complaint about charges for public records with the Texas Building and Procurement Commission and a complaint related to other possible violations with the county attorney, criminal district attorney, or the Office of the Attorney General
