Welcome to the Office of Governmental & Community Relations.
How can we help you?
Our mission is to communicate with the public and maintain positive and effective relationships with governing bodies, other public entities, and the community at large. By focusing on outreach, adapting to stakeholders’ needs and feedback, and keeping them informed, we seek to further the county administration’s goals of responsiveness, transparency and efficiency.
We also assist volunteers interested in applying for appointments to the county executive’s advisory boards and commissions, and we serve as a resource for the county executive’s regional Community Advisory Boards. Please follow the links on the left for more information.
