The Communications and Marketing Department strives to foster a positive relationship between our municipal government and the citizens it serves. Through strategic communication activities, media and employee relations, and special events, Communications and Marketing promotes a positive City image and public trust by telling our story.
This mission is carried out through dissemination of information via traditional and social media outlets, the City’s website, JCTV, and emerging trends in technology and communications such as See Click Fix and Text 180. City events and activities are thoroughly documented through photos and videos, which are shared through the above-mentioned communication vehicles.
The Communications and Marketing Department educates the public about government activities and promotes City services through special classes, tours, presentations and publications. In addition to media requests and press conferences, it coordinates a number of special events including inaugural ceremonies, appreciation luncheons, groundbreakings, and receptions. It also manages internal communications and assists other departments with communications and marketing needs.
Communications and Marketing is tasked with management of the City’s brand, ensuring that graphic standards are met in all uses, overseeing proper usage of logos and lines through trademark law, proper merchandising of City-branded materials, and maintaining the integrity of the brand through a variety of other activities.
