Requests for Information

As a local government entity, the District is subject to the requirements of the Texas Public Information Act (Texas Government Code Chapter 552). Under the Act, all government information is presumed public; however, limited exceptions may apply.

Upon receiving a request, the District is required to promptly release the requested information or apply to the Texas Attorney General within ten business days for a decision whether an exception to the Act applies either requiring or allowing the District to withhold certain information.  The District is not required to produce the records within ten business days.  If the requested records cannot be produced within ten business days the District will notify you in writing of the reasonable date and time when the records will be available.

Things to Know
When making your request, include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the District to accurately identify and locate the information you want.  If a request is overly broad or otherwise unclear, the District may ask for the request to be clarified delaying the production of records.  If the District asks for clarification and you fail to respond, after sixty days the request is considered automatically withdrawn.

Records may be produced by providing the requested records for inspection or duplication at a District facility or by providing copies of the requested records in person or via email.  The District will send copies of the requested records by first class U.S. mail if the requestor asks for that specific method of production and pays the postage along with any other applicable charges.

Every Texas government body must prominently display an Open Records Poster that complies with the rules set by the Office of the Attorney General.  The District’s display is at 3051 Ira E. Woods Avenue, Grapevine, Texas 76051.  Click Here for the electronic version.
