Open Records Requests

Texas Law gives the public the right to access records of governmental agencies, including those of the City of Bay City. State Law also provides that certain records are the exception to the law and are not available to the public. Requests must be for information or records already in existence. The City of Bay City is happy to provide you with the records you are requesting and will do so promptly within our regular work schedule.

A form is also available at the City Secretary’s Office. Open Records Request submitted by email must be addressed to the City Secretary email and must include contact information (name, address and phone).
