FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA)
What is the FOIA Act?
As part of the Texas Government Code, Chapter 552 – you as the requestor have the right to access government records; and an officer for public information and the officer’s agent may not ask why you want them. All government information is presumed to be available to the public. Certain exceptions may apply to the disclosure of the information. Governmental bodies shall promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory, or by judicial decision, or information for which an exception to disclosure has not been sought.
Please note that the County Clerk’s office is NOT the custodian of environmental and tax records.
