The challenge of any Public Information Office is to convert passive consumers of public services into responsible, supportive citizens. The County's Public Information Office does that by creating and distributing accurate messages about your local county government via the web, print media and through one-on-one interactions with constituents.The Public Information Office is committed to unfettered communication between County staff, Elected Officials, and the citizenry. The Public Information Office is charged with the following four (4) primary duties:
- Promoting County services;
- Managing public records;
- Liaising with the media; and
- Acting as the single source of qualified information during a disaster.
By using various marketing techniques, the Public Information Office hopes to make it easier to be informed and stay involved.
