The goal of the Community Relations Department is to make sure that the residents of Opelika (both private and business sectors) stay well-informed about what’s going on in the City of Opelika governing infrastructure and to evaluate public perceptions and feedback from the community so that the city can address those issues in a timely manner. The Community Relations Department gets information out to the public in a variety of ways. Those include:

Another responsibility of the Community Relations Officer – in the event of natural or man-made disasters – is to work with the Lee County Emergency Management Agency in getting information out to the public, allied county agencies, and State and Federal agencies. 

As always, if there is any information this department can provide for the public, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail the Community Relations Department.
