Community Relations

The City of Columbia Community Relations Department’s mission is to provide accurate, timely and reliable information for all citizens and media. The department is comprised of three divisions: Communications and Marketing; Contact Center; and Media and Event Services.

The Communications and Marketing Division provides communication to citizens and City employees; produces monthly and yearly publications sent to citizens; and maintains relationships with local media outlets.

The Contact Center is staffed with helpful customer service representatives, who are also Certified Tourism Ambassadors, who can answer your questions, take your requests or identify the City expert that can assist you. At the beginning of 2018, Utility Customer Service joined the Contact Center. View utility payment information online.

The Media and Event Services Division produces City Channel videos to support all City departments; broadcasts live meetings including City Council meetings; and manages conference room arrangements at City Hall.

Below is contact information for the department and each division as well as community relations specialists or marketing specialists for City departments.
