Publication Policy

Effective Dec. 29, 2003


In order to have accurate, necessary and timely communication with our residents, the Communications Department will approve and coordinate the production of all major publications within the City. This oversight will not only be cost-effective, but will result in consistent visual and verbal messages that are effective and accurate.
