What does this mean?

Generally, local governments, municipalities (cities), counties, towns, and other political subdivisions of the state are immune from most liability under governmental immunity. However, the local government can be liable for certain acts if it waives its immunity by statute. In our state, this statute is the Texas Tort Claims Act (TTCA), which permits suits against governmental entities in limited, specific circumstances.
