City government structure

We show how the City is organized under the Government Structure Ordinance.

New government structure

The new government structure features four direct reports to the Mayor:

  • City Operations Officer
  • City Attorney
  • Community Safety Commissioner
  • Chief of Staff

The plan creates two new offices:

  • The Office of Community Safety integrates the safety work of:
    • Police
    • Fire
    • 911
    • Emergency Management
    • Neighbor Safety (Formerly Office of Violence Prevention)
  • The Office of Public Service joins the operational departments under the leadership of a Chief Operations Officer. Under this office, departments are divided into 3 administrative areas:
    • Internal Services
    • Communications & Engagement Services
    • Development, Health & Livability
    • Four departments operate outside of these areas:
      • Public Works
      • Civil Rights
      • Race Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
      • Performance Management & Innovation
