About is the City of San José’s public website, offering information for our community 24/7. The City of San José is a large organization offering a wide variety of services and programs, and the website is intended to make it easier to find information about these services online.

The purpose of the City website is to provide information of the City's choosing to the public in order to conduct the City’s business and promote the City's goals as guided by the City Council. The City’s website and the selection of sites to which any of them may be linked are not intended to serve as a forum for free discussion. Ample facilities for free expression are available both on the Internet and in the physical world. Instead, the City’s website is intended to serve the City’s need to make useful and practical information available to residents, businesses, and visitors which facilitates provision of a City service or furthers another specifically articulated purpose of the City.

You can search our website by City services, department directory, or by topic. If you are looking for information on City policies and ordinances, try searching the City Council meetings, agendas and minutes database, the City Policy Manual or the Municipal Code.
