City of Melissa Public Information Request Form

  1. The Texas Public Information Act (the “Public Information Act” or the “Act”) gives the public the right to request access to government information. The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to a governmental body. The request must ask for records or information already in existence. The Act does not require a governmental body to create new information, to do legal research, or to answer questions. Requests submitted under the Public Information Act are handled by the City Secretary. Requests can be submitted by online form, mail, fax, email, or in person, and must be in writing. All requests should include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the City to accurately identify and locate the information requested.
