Public Information Requests
The Texas Public Information Act of 1993, as codified in the Texas Government Code Chapter 552, allows citizens access to documents created by and for the City of Crosbyton. Requests for information must be submitted to the City in writing.
While there is no form required to request public information, there are certain guidelines that must be met. The following guidelines are to help you make a successful Public Information Act request.
- Your request must be in writing. Only written requests trigger the city’s obligation under the Public Information Act. The City of Crosbyton has provided a request form to help facilitate your request.
- Your request should include your full name and contact information, and if available, an e-mail address.
- Be clear and provide enough detail in describing the information being requested.
- Your request should be for documents or other information that is already in existence. The City of Crosbyton is not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or comply with a continuing request to supply information.
Please submit written requests by mail, fax or e-mail to the following:
City of Crosbyton
221 West Main
Crosbyton, Texas 79322
We ask that you cooperate with the City personnel and the reasonable efforts to clarify the type or amount of information requested. Keep all appointments to inspect records or to pick up copies.
Charges for Public Information
If producing the information responsive to the request will incur costs of $40.00 or more, the City will provide an itemized cost estimate to you. You must respond to any written estimate of charges within 10 business days of the date we send it or the request is considered to be automatically withdrawn. If estimated costs exceed $100.00, we may require a bond, prepayment or deposit. (Texas Administrative Code, Title 1, Section3, Chapter 70)
