You can request reports online through the Crash Records Information System website. Please allow at least 10 days from the date of the accident to locate your accident report.
Public Information Act Requests
The Texas Public Information Act ("Act"), Chapter 552, Texas Government Code, gives you the right to request access to government information. The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to a governmental body. The request must ask for documents or other information that is already in existence. The Act does not require a governmental body to answer questions, perform legal research, create new information, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis as such information is prepared in the future.
The City of Sanger is using JustFOIA, to process Requests for Public Information Act requests. You will receive an email from JustFOIA with a request number and security key to access your request. (you may need to check your junk/spam folder for the automated email). All correspondence and the release of any responsive documents, if any, will be sent and received through the system.
You may ask to inspect information, get copies of information, or both.
Make your request as clear and specific as possible, including a date range, so that the City can accurately identify and locate the items that you are requesting. If your request is unclear or very broad, the City may ask you to clarify or narrow your request.
