County Programs and Services to be Spotlighted Through Social Media Campaign
Coalville, UT (January 23, 2018) – Summit County will celebrate National County Government Month (NCGM) during the month of April to showcase how the county is building healthy, vibrant and safe communities through innovative efforts in managing justice and public safety systems, fostering conditions for economic growth, strengthening infrastructure and pursuing many other efforts to improve residents’ quality of life.
The theme for this year’s celebration of NCGM is “Serving the Underserved,” showcasing the critical role counties play in breaking multi-generational cycles of poverty, especially with our children. Summit County plans to highlight County programs and services designed to help residents and visitors in our community through a social media campaign, specifically on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In addition, eight county employees will be recognized for their contributions to the County.
“Summit County is proud of the programs and services we provide to our residents,” said Kim Carson, Summit County Council Chair. “Our efforts combined with efforts of counties across the country are helping American communities thrive. I encourage all county residents to follow Summit County on social media during National County Government Month to learn how the county can assist you and your loved ones.”
Since 1991 the National Association of Counties (NACo) has encouraged counties across the country to raise public awareness and understanding about the roles and responsibilities of counties. Residents are encourage to visit our County website to learn more: www.summitcounty.org.”
