County considers consultant for communications


San Benito County officials are considering whether to spend $55,000 to improve communications with the public and get active on social media.
County supervisors at Tuesday morning’s regular meeting are set to consider hiring The Lew Edwards Group, based in Oakland, for an amount not exceeding $55,000 over two years.
The proposed contract with the consultant includes such services as assisting the county in developing its message presented to the community, use of direct mail and other outreach mediums, and educational presentations for the public, according to an agenda for the meeting.
The county put out requests for proposals in October and then again in February, according to the agenda report.
