    How long will it take to get requested records?
    The city will produce responsive records promptly. If the city is unable to produce the requested information within ten business days, the governmental body will send you correspondence certifying that it is unable to do so and if more time is needed to retrieve or assemble the records, a date will be set for when those records will be available. For some requests, it is possible that the governmental body may not have responsive records.
    Is all information public?
    No, some information is excepted from public disclosure under the Texas Public Information Act. The city may withhold information while it seeks a ruling from the Texas Attorney General. If a governmental body makes such a request to the Attorney General, the Attorney General typically responds within approximately forty-five business days. The Attorney General will send a copy of the decision to you.
