Communications Office

The Montgomery County Office of Communications is located in the Commissioners’ Office and is primarily tasked with creating and maintaining effective lines of communication between the county government and its employees, the media, and the public. The Montgomery County Commissioners are dedicated to maintaining a fully transparent government, and the Office of Communications plays a vital role in that effort.

The Office of Communications not only informs its audiences on the actions of the county commissioners, but it also works diligently to provide information to its residents on the multitude of county services provided, recreational activities, historical sites, and other county government-related news.

In addition to traditional means of communicating, the Office of Communications maintains the county’s online presence through county website content management. The Office of Communications is also a frequent user of social media as a means of communicating with the public. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Main functions of the Office of Communications include: 

  • Media relations 
  • Community relations 
  • Employee communications 
  • Website content management
  • Special events
