Open Records Request
Request for Information under Texas Public Information Act
Texas Government Code, Chapter 552
The Texas Public Information Act allows the public the right to access government information. All persons who request information must do so in writing. They must submit a written request that includes enough description and details of the information; also allowing the governmental body to accurately identify and locate the information which you are requesting. The request must be for records or information that already exists. The Public Information Act does not require a governmental body to create new records, perform legal research or to answer questions. The requestor may ask to inspect records, obtain copies of records or both. Although most government information is available under the Act, some exceptions exist.
Effective June 18, 2007, (in accordance with Subchapter A, Chapter 552.149, Government Code), sales
information is no longer considered open records. However, evidence requested under Section 41.461
(a) (2), Texas Property Tax Code, for Appraisal Review Board hearings, must be disclosed.
Written Open Record Requests submitted under the Texas Public Information Act may be submitted by mail, fax, e-mail or in person to the following:
Willacy County Appraisal District
688 FM 3168 Raymondville, TX 78580
