E-mail Newsletters 

Lee County Government distributes two monthly newsletters and notices of upcoming Lee County Commission Board meetings and workshops, as well as one-off special communications as applicable. To sign up for our e-mail distribution list, visit www.leegov.com/resources/newsletters.

Video Content

Lee County Government uses video to better engage and communicate with residents and visitors on important subjects. Video storytelling is an important component of Community Engagement to get timely and essential information to our residents, seasonal visitors and all who live, work or play in Lee County. Check out the County’s YouTube Channel for playlists about Hurricane Season Preparation, behind-the-scenes looks at departments, All-Electronic Tolls Information and more. 

In addition to produced video content, Board of County Commissioner Meetings and workshops, and many other meetings are live-streamed on LeeTV (available on Comcast channel 97 or through YouTube) and saved to our YouTube channel for later viewing.
