Open Records Requests and Records Department

The Office of the City Secretary is the administrative agency responsible for the care and maintenance of all City of Bryan records. We house all legal transactions, City Council minutes, agendas, cemetery records, deeds, ordinances, resolutions, contracts and a vast array of other historical and regulatory information. The City Secretary is designated as the City’s Records Management Officer by both State law and City ordinance. Most open records requests for the City of Bryan are processed by the City Secretary’s Office.

State law provides that a city may designate a person that is authorized to receive email or faxed requests for open records. If a city makes such a designation, the Open Records Act is only activated if the request is directed to the assigned individual. Resolution No. 3022 designates the City Secretary as the public information officer authorized to receive faxed and emailed requests for open records.
