The Public Affairs & Communications Department serves all City departments providing accurate, consistent and timely information to residents, businesses, news media, city employees, community groups and others.
Our responsibilities include media relations, editorial briefings, direction, content and design of the City's Virtual City Hall and Intranet sites, original programming for broadcast on Channels 14/73, video streaming, advertising, presentation and media training, printed material, copy editing, graphic design, speech writing, in-person presentations and participation in citywide and community-wide initiatives, as well as serving as the City's official spokesperson to news media.
The division leads the 20-member interdepartmental Communications Team, which offers a clearinghouse of marketing and public-affairs services to City departments and provides emergency communications during EOC activation. We publish the weekly e-newsletter and manage content and delivery for dozens of e-mail distribution lists.
