Public Information Requests

Click to view the Handbook

On behalf of myself, my green industry colleagues, and most importantly to assist the TFS and other applicable public agencies in their service to Texans who would like further details on oak wilt – I have begun an ongoing campaign of public information requests (PIRs) in order to disseminate the information received via numerous means (website, youtube, presentations, emails, etc.).

I hope that not only for the public, the industry but also for the state agencies this PIR campaign is a learning experience and opportunity to fulfill the agency’s “Compact with Texans” in a manner of humility, honesty, and admitting faults as well as making restitution as appropriate. PIRs/Open Record Requests/FOIAs (Freedom of Information Act) are a foundational tool and expression of our First Amendment rights and when applicable an integral means of the pursuit of seeking redress from our government and its agencies (local, state, or federal).

I encourage the reader to suggest to me further PIR requests to consider asking for or if the reader has made some previously that they would like me to post – please feel free to contact me. I will present the PIRs within a theme-topic approach as opposed to a chronological approach.

Since I was a young boy, family vacation time meant visiting one or various of our Texas state parks. The TPWD staff was then and are now my heroes for fighting to preserve and care for our beautiful state. Their efforts here with this experimental endeavor - whether a complete success or just a means toward that end, represents the continued devotion and fight of this agency to their mission. Thank you to all other agencies who cooperated with them!
