Allen’s Public and Media Relations Office uses creativity to inform and inspire.

From the pages of a favorite fairytale to the latest binge-worthy streaming series, we humans are captivated by stories. They instruct, influence, infuriate and inspire. They introduce us to new perspectives and help us investigate our world.

Whether posting construction updates on Nextdoor, pitching a feature to a local reporter or editing a Lone Star Emmy-nominated original program for Allen City Television, the city’s Public and Media Relations Office exists to tell Allen’s story. You see their handiwork when you live stream a council meeting, ask a question on the City’s Facebook page and open your annual Trash and Recycling Guidelines.

Now, this Stories of Service series invites you to step into the steel-toed boots and paper-strewn offices of the 879 people who keep Allen running. This collection of articles and accompanying videos—which can be found at—provides a unique glimpse into the everyday work of your City government.

“Most of the time, citizens experience only a small sliver of City operations,” said Public and Media Relations Director Teresa Warren. “We want to pull back the curtain so they can see the full picture and feel confident in all the ways their City is working for them.”
