How did we get here?

The County Clerk’s website has been experiencing high usage volume. In order to better handle that volume, a planned software change was undertaken. During that change, an unexpected hardware issue occurred.

We are still in the process of implementing a long-term solution to that hardware issue. Until that happens, this temporary search system is designed to provide the public with full access to all official public records that are available online.


What are the plans for the future?

In Fall of 2016, the County Clerk’s Office will be releasing a Request for Proposals for a new Recording Software System. Part of that new Recording Software System will be a robust searchable system so that the public is able to search official public record documents online.

Additionally, the County Clerk is continuing work on a plan for the digitization of records that are not yet in digital format.

Please send any feedback you may have via email to: webmaster.

To reach someone in the Recording Division call (512) 854-9188.

Copy Rates

Governmental bodies shall release requested information as promptly as possible, unless the information is exempt from disclosure under the Public Information Act.

Requests Exceeding $40

If the cost of a request is expected to exceed $40, a staff member will send an estimate letter to the requestor. The letter will include an itemized statement of any copying, personnel or mailing charges that will be incurred in fulfilling the request. Once the requestor confirms that he or she agrees to the estimated costs, a staff member will begin compiling the records. If a requestor does not respond within 10 days, the file will be closed.

Public Information Requests

All government information is presumed to be available to the public, although certain exceptions may apply. You may request public records online by clicking here, or you may email your request to [email protected] Please note, pursuant to section 552.301(c) of the Government Code, the City of Austin has designated [email protected] as the email address for public information requests sent by electronic mail. A request sent by email will not be considered received unless sent to the designated email address.

The City of Austin has submitted a catastrophe notice to the Texas Office of the Attorney General to suspend certain deadlines under the Texas Public Information Act for seven calendar days. This notice and the suspension will allow City departments involved in the response to the winter weather to continue to provide life-saving assistance to its residents.

The City submitted the notice on February 22, 2021, in accordance with section 552.233 of the Texas Government Code. This provision authorizes a governmental body to suspend the applicability of the requirements of the Public Information Act if the governmental body is affected by a catastrophe. This notice will expire on March 1, 2021.

Departments whose operations were not affected by the winter weather will continue to respond to public information requests under normal procedures.

These notice provisions were passed by the Texas Legislature in 2019 in response to Hurricane Harvey. Several governmental entities have used this procedure during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This extreme winter weather event is the first time the City of Austin has implemented this notice.

  • Inform the requestor if the information cannot be provided promptly and set a date and time to provide it within a reasonable time;
  • Request a ruling from the Office of the Attorney General regarding any information the governmental body wishes to withhold, and send a copy of the request for ruling, or a redacted copy, to the requestor;

A. Information to be released

  • You may review it promptly, and if it cannot be produced within 10 working days the public information officer will notify you in writing of the reasonable date and time when it will be available.
  • Keep all appointments to inspect records and to pick up copies.  Failure to keep appointments may result in losing the opportunity to inspect the information at the time requested.

Cost of Records

  • You must respond to any written estimate of charges within 10 days of the date the governmental body sent it or the request is considered automatically withdrawn.
  • If estimated costs exceed $100.00 (or $50.00 if a governmental body has fewer than 16 full time employees) the governmental body may require a bond, prepayment or deposit.
  • You may ask the governmental body to determine whether providing the information primarily benefits the general public, resulting in a waiver or reduction of charges.
  • Make a timely payment for all mutually agreed charges. A governmental body can demand payment of overdue balances exceeding $100.00, or obtain a security deposit, before processing additional requests from you.

B. Information that may be withheld due to an exception

  • By the 10th business day after a governmental body receives your written request, a governmental body must:
    1. request an Attorney General opinion and state which exceptions apply;
    2. notify the requestor of the referral to the Attorney General; and
    3. notify third parties if the request involves their proprietary information.
  • Failure to request an Attorney General opinion and notify the requestor within 10 business days will result in a presumption that the information is open unless there is a compelling reason to withhold it.
  • Requestors may send a letter to the Attorney General arguing for release, and may review arguments made by the governmental body.   If the arguments disclose the requested information, the requestor may obtain a redacted copy.
  • The Attorney General must issue a decision no later than the 45th working day from the day after the attorney general received the request for a decision.  The attorney general may request an additional 10 working day extension.

How Do I Visit an inmate in Austin City Jail?

Austin City is home to some of Travis County correctional facilities, specifically the Travis County jail and Travis State jail. Travis County Jail (TCJ) was opened in 1986 to house 286 pre-trial detainees. Visitors can contact the jails at the following locations:

Travis County Jail/Central Booking
500 West 10th Street, Austin, TX 78701
Austin, Texas 78701
Phone: (512) 854-9033

Travis County State Jail

Location: Two miles east of Hwy 183 on FM 969,
Travis County
Austin City Jail
715, E 8th Str,
Austin, TX 78724

Visitation to the county jail is either via face-to-face meeting or by video visit. Visitors must pre-schedule a visit at least 24 hours before the intended date. Face-to-face visits occur on weekends and during official holidays, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, and from 4:00 to 9:00 pm. Visits may be pre-scheduled online (remotely) or by using the laptop provided at the jail lobby.

Face-to-face visits are restricted to three persons per visit including children. Visitors must check in 30 minutes prior to their visit to allow time for the inmate to be brought down for visitation. Lateness may cause the visit to be canceled, and one will need to re-register for the terminated slot.

Adult visitors must present a valid government-issued photo ID such as a passport or driver’s license, while minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Visiting rights can be denied because of improper conduct, as such visitors are advised to adhere to all jail protocols, especially the facility's dressing rules, to be granted access to the facility.

Video visitation is divided into on-site and home video visits. Inmates must qualify for visitation to be granted either face-to-face visits or video visits. On-site videos are free and administered during normal regular visitation hours at the center. While home video visitation is done remotely. It affords users the convenience of video visitation from home using their personal devices. Each visit lasts 20 minutes, it is paid for by the visitor and is available seven (7) days per week, including holidays.

Additionally, loved ones may contact inmates via mail by following the procedure below;

Inmate Name,
Inmate ID
Travis County Jail/Central Booking,
