Amarillo City Council Eyeing Limits on Open Records Act

The City of Amarillo is considering placing limits on the Texas Open Records Act, according to an agenda posted for Tuesday's meeting.

According to the agenda, the Amarillo City Council is considering approving a change to the local Code of Ordinances that would set limits on the amount of time that City of Amarillo staff are required to spend fulfilling Texas Open Records Act information requests without recovering the costs of that personnel time.

If approved, limits will be set at 15 hours for a single month or 36 hours in a year's time frame.

Also during Tuesday night's meeting, City Councilmembers will consider several rezoning ordinances and contracts, as well as have a discussion on the 2018 Blueprint for Amarillo.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 27th at Amarillo City Hall (509 Southeast 7th Avenue). The meeting begins at 5pm.
