Orange County: Your County at Work
In December, 2012, the Board of Supervisors adopted a Communication Plan for the purpose of enhancing communication efforts with its citizens.  The Communication Plan outlined the Board's desire for the creation of a County 101 DVD to illustrate Orange County and the services its government provides.  Orange County proudly released the Orange County: Your County at Work video in August, 2013.  View the Orange County: Your County at Work video here, or contact the County Administrator's Office to request a DVD copy.
