Fill out the City of Cleburne's Public Information Request Form.
Please allow up to 10 business days for processing.
The Texas Public Information Act gives the public the right to request access to government information. The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to the city. The request must ask for records or information already in existence. The Act does not require the city to create new information, to do legal research, or to answer questions. In preparing a request, a person may want to ask what information is available.
Note: Although the Texas Public Information Act makes most government information available to the public, some exceptions exist. If an exemption might apply and the city wishes to withhold the information, the city generally must, within 10 business days of receiving the public information request, refer the matter to the Office of the Attorney General for a ruling on whether an exception applies. See the Public Information Act Handbook prepared by the Office of the Attorney General here.
Charges are associated with certain requests. If charges exceed $40, an estimate will be provided to the requestor, and should charges exceed $100, a deposit will be required before proceeding with the fulfillment of the request. Some common charges are listed below. See the Texas Administrative Code, Rule 70.3 for additional charges.
