Washington County places a high value on the connections we have with residents, families and the community. The Communications team monitors countywide information about its projects, programs, services, ordinances and policies to assure accurate information is disseminated to the public. 

The Communications team handles media relations for the Washington County Board of Commissioners, the county, and the Washington County departments. Communications staff issue press releases and respond to media requests. Staff also uses social media to promote county events, resources, initiatives and information. The Communications team is also responsible for managing the Washington County website and the employee's intranet.
