Our Mission
"Telling the City’s stories and marketing Monterey in an accurate, timely, creative way that enhances quality of life; informs in emergencies; and engages our residents, businesses, visitors and staff."
The Communications & Outreach Office provides strategic communications, community engagement programs, media relations and public information in emergencies. The office manages the City's external and internal websites, government access TV station, social media sites, and emergency radio station. Staff produce online newsletters, community surveys, TV programs and videos, and serve as the Public Information Office in the event of an emergency.
You can watch our programming on The Monterey Channel on-demand and on our YouTube channel. You can sign up for various online City publications, and find us on Facebook.
If you have ideas or comments, please contact us anytime. We look forward to hearing from you!
