Cherokee County’s Communications Division has launched a community survey to learn more about how constituents want to receive news and event information from the county.

The communications division was launched in early May to assist the Board of Commissioners, county manager’s office and other county government offices communicate news and events to the public.   

The survey will be open until the end of July and all responses are anonymous.
