The Texas Public Information Act

The Texas Public Information Act (the "TPIA") gives the public the right to request access to government information.

Making a Request

The TPIA is triggered when a person submits a written request to the City. The request must ask for information that is already in existence. The Act does not require the City to create new information, compile data, do legal research, or answer questions.
