Public Information

The Public Information Officer reports to the City Manager and is responsible for informing the public of city services and objectives. At the same time, the PIO seeks two-way communication with the community and solicits feedback regarding how to better serve the public.

Some of the communication methods currently employed include:

  • The City of Fort Walton Beach’s website,
  • The City’s Facebook page,
  • Regular news releases and billboard posts
  • The Fort Walton Beach news segment of the monthly “Okaloosa Today” show
  • The annual Citizen Satisfaction Survey, distributed via water bill and online via the website
  • Brochures, fliers, and other print materials
