HenryTV:

HenryTV is the product of a Board of Commissioners who wished to make government more accessible to citizens. With many of our residents commuting outside the County to work every day, we know that citizen participation in Commission meetings and other County functions is sometimes very difficult. With television as an avenue of communication, we can bring government to the citizens, in the comfort of their own homes, and ultimately foster a better informed, more involved community. HenryTV is Henry County's official source for information about Henry County government news, programs and events. And it is the only place citizens can watch Henry County Commission meetings from gavel to gavel. For the most up-to-date, accurate and dependable information about your local government, trust the official source.
