Our city is a vibrant community boasting a diverse population of more than 1 million residents as well as a beautiful natural landscape. Just a few decades ago we were a farming community known for our miles of orchards. Today San José is the tenth largest city in the country and the Capitol of Silicon Valley, an international leader in the bioscience industry, and at the national forefront of green technology movement. 

The City of San José operates under the council-manager form of government, a system that combines the policy leadership of elected officials in the form of a city council, with the managerial expertise of an appointed city manager. The City Manager oversees the daily business of City operations, prepares recommendations and implements the policy direction approved by the Mayor and City Council. We are committed to providing quality customer service to our residents, businesses, and visitors. We constantly and consistently seek their input and involvement. Our priorities and goals are based on their feedback. Together, we are working to keep San José growing and thriving. If you have an idea as to how we can improve, let us know. I want to hear from you.
