The Communications Department assists the departments within the Lake County Board of County Commissioners in expanding internal and external communications. This is accomplished through three key areas: web and multimedia development, graphic design and media relations. The staff, which consists of one Public Education Coordinator, two graphic artists and two web developers, works as a team similar to an advertising agency, using the creative skills of all its members to produce ingenious solutions to a variety of communication-based projects.
One of the many duties assigned to the office involves working closely with the Office of Economic Development & Tourism to prepare advertisements and marketing materials to promote Lake County as a tourist destination. With funding provided through Lake County’s tourist tax, some of the recent projects completed for the department include the quarterly Special Events Guide, the 52-page Vacation Guide, Lake County’s VIP Vacation Card materials and the Clermont Chain of Lakes Map.
The office also currently hosts and maintains several County agency Web sites, some of which include:
- Lake County Board of County Commissioners
- Lake County Property Appraiser’s Office
- Lake County Supervisor of Elections
- Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)
- LakeXpress (the County’s fixed bus route system)
- Lake County Library System
- Lake County Economic Growth and Redevelopment
From preparing the State of the County presentation and annual report to helping inform the public of life-safety issues during times of disasters, Communications Department strives to provide a consistent and timely message to the citizens of Lake County.
