About Information Technology

Information Services supports the technologies and enterprise business applications that are foundational to serving the residents and businesses of this dynamic community. We work collaboratively with all City departments on technology projects that support Council priorities and continuously improve service to the community.

It is a key goal of Information Technology to find innovative technologies that create efficiencies, reduce risk, and support fiscal responsibility. Implementing enterprise solutions that can be used by multiple departments and providing effective technology for an increasingly mobile workforce are just some of the ways that Information Technology is driving efficiency through innovation. We seek to leverage robust infrastructure design, sound policies, fluid disaster planning, and active cybersecurity program to help ensure all departments have the technology tools required to serve the public and that data is appropriately secured.
