The Manager’s Initiative’s Group I (MIG-I) functions under direction of the City Manager and is responsible for internal and external strategic communications and messaging for the City of Janesville. MIG-I was formed in 2014 and is staffed by a Management Information Specialist and a part-time Management Information Intern.

The goal of MIG-I is to design and implement a comprehensive approach to effective communication between the City and its stakeholders with particular emphasis on relations between the City Manager’s Office and the public, media, external elected and appointed officials, business leaders and community groups. MIG-I intends to enhance stakeholder satisfaction by keeping them informed and engaging them in City activities and decision-making processes. Additionally, MIG-I works to improve internal communication processes.
