Public Information

Open Records 

To request records from the City of Midland please visit our Public Records Request Center. Upon creation of a request you will be assigned a tracking number and confirmation.

Public Records Request Center

The City recommends that you submit your request for public information via the Public Records Request Center. If you instead choose to submit your request by e-mail, you must submit your request to publicinfo@midlandtexas.gov.  If you submit your request to any other e-mail address, your request may not be received by the officer for public information or the persons to whom the officer for public information’s authority has been delegated.

For birth, death, and marriage records please contact the Midland County Clerk.

Attorneys and Attorneys' Agents and Employees

If you are an attorney or an agent or employee of an attorney who is seeking records that are relevant to pending civil litigation, the City recommends that you (or the attorney on whose behalf you are seeking the records if you are not an attorney) serve a subpoena duces tecum on the City’s custodian of the records you seek in accordance with the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure instead of submitting a request for information under the Texas Public Information Act.

The Texas Public Information Act does not apply to a subpoena duces tecum.  Thus, an attorney who serves a subpoena duces tecum may be entitled to receive more information quicker than an attorney who submits a request for information under the Texas Public Information Act.

Additionally, if you submit a request for information under the Texas Public Information Act instead of serving a subpoena duces tecum, you may incur costly labor fees associated with redacting information that you may otherwise be entitled to receive via a subpoena duces tecum.

Please direct your subpoena duces tecum to the custodian of records for the department or division that maintains the records you seek.  Below are the most common records custodians on whom subpoenas duces tecum are served:

  • Custodian of Records – City of Midland Police Department
    601 N. Loraine St.
    Midland, Texas 79701
    (Police Department records)
  • Custodian of Records – City of Midland Fire Department
    1500 W. Wall St.
