The Director of the Department of Public Affairs, under
the supervision of the Mayor and Administrator,
performs all appropriate functions respecting City
Public Affairs, including:

  • Oversight, Recreation Division
  • Administration, Boat Ramp Division
  • Public Relations & Public Information Officer
  • Administrator of Municipal and Tourism
    Websites
  • Supervisor, Division of Celebrations, Tourism,
    and Public Events
  • Director, Vital Statistics
  • Director, Board of Health
  • Coordinator, Affirmative Action

An almost literal interpretation of the department’s
name has allowed us to assist almost everyone from
residents, to school officials, to employees; from citizen
groups to business groups; from the Police Department
to City officials, and more. In the past we have co-sponsored
events; vaccinated dogs and cats; planted flowers; completed
mass mailings; hosted tall ships; played sports from football
to baseball; launched boats; safety-trained coaches; installed
new basketball courts; made arts & crafts projects; picked up
litter; and  more.

In order to accomplish our objectives, the Department of
Public Affairs works closely with other City departments,
especially the Public Works and Public Safety Departments.
