You can search by city but in some cases you may not get all dockets.  An example would be if there was numerous cities that filed for an appeal the cities would not be listed for that docket.

If you do not know the complete name of an application you can key in part of the name in the value field “Centerpoint*” and all the dockets that begin with that name will appear.

Next to each Value box there is information in gray text that describes the requirements.

If you have any questions, please call 512-463-7163.
