The Office of Communications connects the media and citizens of Newnan to the city government. We handle all media inquiries, the city website, all city social media platforms, stream the city council meetings, and manage all filming requests. We also hold a yearly Newnan Citizens Academy for citizens who want to learn more about their local government.
