The City Secretary’s office is responsible for the care and maintenance of all City records.  These records include all City Council minutes, agendas, ordinances, resolutions, deeds, easements, plats, contracts and historical information. The City Secretary is designated as the City’s Records Management Officer by City Ordinance. This designation makes her responsible for developing and administering a records retention and destruction policy, monitoring the records storage area and overseeing the control of electronically stored records. In addition to these responsibilities, the City Secretary responds to numerous requests for City records filed each year under the Texas Public Information Act.

If you need to view or obtain copies of public information in the custody of the City of Katy, you must submit a written request or an Open Records Request to the attention of the City Secretary via in person, mail, fax or email. When obtaining copies of public information, please be aware that there may be fees associated with providing the information. 

Every effort is made to expedite all requests for disclosure of public records; however, due to personnel demands and schedules, there are incidents when the disclosure of records may take the time allowed by law (ten business days).
