Public Information Request

The City of Terrell’s public documents are available online by accessing the City Documents page. However, if you can’t find what you are looking for, you may make an Open Records request.

About the Open Records Act:

“The Public Information Act, formerly known as the Open Records Act, is located at chapter 552 of the Government Code. The Act provides a mechanism for citizens to inspect or copy government records. It also provides for instances in which governmental bodies wish to, or are required by law to, withhold government records from the public.” (Texas Attorney General).

Request Public Information:

If you have any questions or difficulties, submitting an Open Records Request, or require assistance, please contact the office of the City Secretary.

The Secretary’s office provides records management services for the City of Terrell, organizing and storing documents pertaining to all aspects of municipal government. Posting of public meetings and legal advertising is handled through the City Secretary’s office. The office is an open information resource for the public. Requests for information on local ordinances, the city budget, department operations, City Council meetings, and other municipal operations can be made during regular office hours. You may obtain copies of ordinances, meeting minutes, and other open information for a small copying charge.

Request Crash Reports:

Upon written request and payment of required fees, the department will provide a copy of the crash report.
