Public Information Request and Procedures

Public Information Request


Before you submit your request for public information, it is important to determine the proper elected official or county department that would have your information.

The Public Information Office primarily processes requests for county departments. Some elected officials and appointed members are the custodians of their own records. 



Please follow the instructions below to submit your request to the proper office.


         ELECTED OFFICIALS AND APPOINTED MEMBERS                              COUNTY DEPARTMENTS
If you are seeking Public Information from one of the Elected Officials or appointed members listed in the chart below, please contact them directly as they are the custodian of records for their offices/departments. According to Texas Government Code Section 552.201(b), each elected county officer is the officer for public information and the custodian of the information created or received by that county officer's office.
If you are seeking Public Information from a County Department, please use our Request for Public Information Form (fillable PDF form) or email your request to open.records@co.hidalgo.tx.us.
