The Office of Communications & Public Information provides customers with an easily accessible point of contact within City government.

(Local origination/community programs appear on Channel 69. Meetings of City Council, the School Board, Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals are shown on Channel 70. See the current cablecast schedule for details.)

    In addition, the Office conducts evaluations of the cable system and prepares an annual report for the City Council. It also responds to frequently asked questions about Verizon FiOS.
