About the Communications Department

The Communications team gathers and hands out information residents need to know about city policies, programs, services and neighborhoods. You can watch City Council meetings on TV and stream them on the web. We also produce brochures, pamphlets and  posters. We are always planning and collaborating with city leaders, departments and outside organizations to make sure we have the information you need to know to improve your life.
