This department creates, designs and disseminates informational and promotional materials for public consumption. From brochures, logo design, self-mailers, promotional items, newsletters, administrative forms, press releases to PowerPoint presentations, the Communications Department is the information arm of the Executive's Office. The department also maintains the county government Website. The Website has grown in both content and form and has emerged as one of the best of its kind in the state.

The Department of Communications has designed and implemented several outreach programs that benefit the citizens of Summit County. The newest outreach effort is "Government At Your Service," a community service fair where all county offices and their representatives showcase their programs and register citizens for assistance, reductions in taxes and many other county programs. 

As the public information coordinator of all county elected offices, this department coordinates annual activities that benefit such service organizations as Harvest for Hunger, United Way and the Red Cross. 

The Department of Communications has been awarded several grants to fund Healthy Start, Youth Employment for Success and Recycle Education.

Recently, Executive Russell M. Pry was awarded 4 national awards through the work of the department in graphic design and writing by the National Association of County Information Officers.
