Public Information Requests

Bastrop County's desire is to provide the fullest possible access to public information.  For detailed guidelines and requirements about public information requests, please refer to the Texas Public Information Act.

General Information
  • The Texas Public Information Act does not require a governmental body to create new information, do legal research, or to answer questions.
  • Requests must be made in writing.
  • Some requests may have an associated cost in accordance with the charges set by Texas Office of Attorney General and the Texas Administrative Code.  You will be advised of the estimated cost prior to fulfillment of the records request.
  • On occasion, some requested information may be protected from release to the public and will be referred to the Texas Attorney General Office (AG) for an opinion.  The requestor will be notified within 10 days of receipt of their request if it is being sent to the AG.
