Procedures to Obtain Information
- Submit a request by mail, fax, in person, or via the online tool according to Runnels Central Appraisal District (RCAD) procedures.
- Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the government body to accurately identify and locate the information requested.
- Cooperate with our reasonable efforts to clarify the type or amount of information requested.
Information to be Released
Appraisal District staff will make every effort to produce the information requested as promptly as possible. If it cannot be produced within 10 working days, we will notify you in writing of the reasonable date and time when it will be available.
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estimate of charges within 10 days of the date the governmental body sent it or the request is considered automatically withdrawn. RCAD has fewer than 16 full time employees; therefore, we may require a bond, prepayment or deposit. If you believe the information requested primarily benefits the general public, you may ask us for a waiver or reduction of charges.
All mutually agreed charges should be paid in a timely manner. RCAD can demand payment of overdue balances exceeding $100, or obtain a security deposit, before processing additional requests from you.
