Record Request

If costs for copies are assessed, the requestor has a right to receive an estimate. Do you wish to waive your right to an estimate and agree to pay copying and duplication costs? Enter the maximum amount below that you are willing to pay to waive your right to an estimate.

Provide a detailed description of the record(s) requested, including:

  1. Type of record

Under the TPRA, record requests must be sufficiently detailed to enable a governmental entity to identify the specific records sought. As such, your record request must provide enough detail to enable the records custodian responding to the request to identify the specific records you are seeking.
