Carla Showell-Lee, Chief Information Officer for Upper Merion Township, leads a team who strive to raise awareness and understanding of community interests and activities, while distributing content through the township’s multi- media outlets. We accomplish that goal through a variety of ways.
Upper Merion's Government Access Channel has provided programming since 1996, and over the years we have produced award winning television shows. This 24/7 community service channel is found on Verizon (Channel 33) and Comcast (Channel 22). UMGA-TV’s Community Bulletin Board enables residents to publicize local events. These productions are enhanced with special graphics and broadcasted multiple times throughout the day. The Board of Supervisors meetings are televised live and rebroadcasted until the next scheduled meeting. UMGA-TV produces several PSA’s and original programs; the longer formatted magazine shows are produced, written, voiced, and edited by the township's television staff or professional consultants.
The township website archives all electronic and print publications. Residents are encouraged to supply content for any of our media outlets and to subscribe to the E-Newsletter by entering an email address under the Quick Links section of the website. Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, and Instagram icons, placed on the front page of the website, keep our visitors up to speed as we disseminate vital information (even through pictures) to those who electronically receive their news updates.
