The city secretary/communications position is actually two positions combined into one, an effort made by the city to streamline the city government and to cut back on expenses.
As City Secretary, Sloane was responsibilities included but not limited to coordinating elections and voter registration, agendas and packets for the City Council and commissions and boards, handling public information request, coordinating volunteers for city programs and maintaining updated city ordinances and codes and other city records.
As City Communications Coordinator, Sloane was responsible for all official public communications including press releases, newsletters, facebook, twitter, media relations and public affairs, website administration and development, photography and video coordination and special event administration.
