Request for Public Information Form
The Public Information Act
The Texas Public Information Act requires governmental agencies to make available for inspection and copying all information that is collected, assembled, or maintained or maintained by or for a governmental body if it owns or has a right of access to the information, except for information the Act exempts or prohibits from disclosure, according to Chapter 552 of the Texas Government Code.
Please be advised that confidential information is often included in documents held by the City of Alpine. The City may not be able to release this information. The Texas Public Information Act requires a governmental entity to request an open letter ruling from the Texas Attorney General prior to withholding information that is confidential. The Attorney General’s Office has 45 days to respond to a request for an open letter ruling. However, you will be given the option of expediting the request if you are willing to receive only non-confidential information.
For general questions on making public information requests or for special accommodations pursuant to the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), please contact the City of Alpine City Secretary at (432) 837-3301 or 100 N 13th St, Alpine, Texas 79830.
