This department was established in October 2012, for the purpose of promoting Morgan County and keeping its residents in touch with their local government.
To achieve these goals the commission decided to publish a quarterly publication: The Voice of Morgan County. The 16-page product carries information about County services and features the county's employees along with other articles about happenings in and around the courthouse. The first edition was published in December. On this page you will find archived and current copies of the publication.
Also, you may view multimedia presentations of different county events.
We hope you enjoy the products we have developed for your benefit and enjoyment.
