Video Showcases Ongoing Successes in Bristol Township
Bristol Township released a new promotional video this week to highlight the vast infrastructure improvements made since 2012 and promote the positive developments in the township–The 2 ½ -minute video which is narrated by Council President Craig Bowen, is the result of months of creative work. “The cost of the video was next to nothing,” said Bristol Township Manager Bill McCauley. “We produced it for less than $800 since most of the work was done in-house,” said McCauley. The video also targets those who aren’t familiar with our community and gives them a feel for Bristol Township and what it is like to live, work and do business here. “We hope to attract more out-of-town visitors and businesses,” said McCauley.
