New County Department Will Touch Base With Citizens

Summit County has established a new department for outreach to their constituents.  

The new Communicaton and Public Engagement Department, set up through the 2020 budget process, will report to Deputy County Manager Janna Young.

The Department will be headed up by North Summit native Derek Siddoway.  The Deputy Director is Krachel Fullmer, a Heber resident.    Another member of the team is Tyler Orgill, who was hired last year as Special Events and County Fair Manager.

The Department will be located in the county’s Health Department offices near Quinn’s Junction, with satellite offices throughout the county, including the Coalville Courthouse.

The county’s press release, issued Monday, said they will soon be looking for a Multi-Cultural Outreach Specialist, to enable increased communication with non-English-speaking residents and to deal with Rural Affairs.

The Department will also be working on better two-way communications to collect public opinion; setting up liaisons to county offices and departments; improving internal communications; working on crisis communications; and using graphic design, marketing and branding to inform the citizens about what the county does.
