Our Mission

The Public Information Office’s main focus is to help the general public and media with access to open records and information on how our departments work and support the 39 elected officials within the county government framework.

Here’s a brief list of our functions:

  • Oversees compliance on open records requests of county departments: Collin County maintains a vast storehouse of public records, most of which can be searched and found through our online services. For those records that aren’t online, visit our open records request page.
  • Plan and implement public information programs countywide;
  • Plan, design, write and edit news releases, newsletters, informational articles, pamphlets and brochures; and,
  • Coordinate and conduct press conferences, public meetings and special events.

Here are some other frequently sought county links and contact information for items that may not require a formal, open records request:

  • Public Notices: Public meetings, hearings, minutes, general announcements.
  • County Checkbook: The first county check register made available online in the country, with information back to 2007.

For the Media: We are the main point of contact for information and interview requests for the County Commissioners Court and the county departments that fall directly under their supervision.
