Public Information Request

City of Tye, Texas

Where it all comes together

Public information requests must be submitted in writing to the City of Tye.  Your written request needs to be for information already in existence.  The City of Tye is not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or create new information in response to your public information request.

Tips for successful public information requests:

​The City of Tye recommends that you send your request to the chief administrator for the department that would handle your request:
Police Department, Police Chief Jay Strong
Fire Department, Fire Chief Shawn Hicks
Municipal Court, Judge Donna Eyrse
For all other requests, City Secretary Belinda Hohhertz

​Your request may be submitted by U.S. mail, hand-delivery, e-mail or facsimile.  You may also fill out the form below.

Ensure your request is as clear and specific as possible.  Include you name and a good contact number in case we have questions.  Failure to provide us with clear and specific information may delay your request.

The City of Tye has 10 business days to respond to your request.  Depending on the information you are requesting, additional time may be needed.  If additional time is needed, the chief administrator will send you correspondence certifying that they are unable to do so, and must set a date and time of when the records will be available to you.

Fees for copies of and access to public information depend on the request.  The chief administrator will provide you an estimate of the cost prior to fulfilling your request.

Certain information may be exempt to disclosure.  If the information you request is exempt, the chief administrator will notify you.

If you believe the City of Tye has not properly responded to your Public Information Act request, contact the Open Records Hotline at: (512) 478-6737 or Toll free: (877) 673-6839
