Communications Office


The Bay County Communications Office is responsible for producing a variety of publications, maintaining media relations and supervising other special projects that help strengthen the communication between the Board of County Commissioners and the community.

The Communications Office also aims to enhance the community’s access to Bay County government both directly and via traditional media outlets. This one-person office is responsible for maintaining positive community and media relations through frequent contact and availability, preparation and distribution of informational publications, fact sheets, news articles and related materials and through the use of social media outlets. 

The Communications director also leads in dissemination of information to the public, news media and other governmental entities during disaster events and coordinates with the local legislative delegation members to develop a legislative program of specific interest to Bay County. Governmental transparency and integrity is of the utmost importance, and the Communications Office strives to ensure openness and accountability to the media and public on behalf of the Bay County Board of County Commissioners.

Most written communications to or from State and Local Officials regarding State or Local business are public records available to the public and media upon request. Your email communications may therefore be subject to public disclosure. To make a public records request, please email Bay County manager Bob Majka, records custodian. 

To submit a new request, please click the New Request link and complete the form.
Or write or call
Bob Majka, County Manager
840 W. 11th St.
