Town Halls

One tool the county is using to provide, and update, constituents on important county business is telephone town halls. This popular way to reach out has helped the commissioners stay in touch with thousands of Jefferson County residents; provide a platform for asking questions of the board; and, provide feedback to the commissioners on issues facing the county.
