About Us

The City of Ventura recognizes the essential role Information Technology plays in connecting public services to our employees, residents, businesses, and community stakeholders.

Although the City has long had an Information Technology Division within its Finance Department, Council approved the creation of an Information Technology Department in June 2021. The newly formed 23-member IT Department is responsible for implementing the City’s strategic technology plan, managing new and replacement software, identifying emerging technologies, and ensuring strategic business investments are customer-focused and deliver the highest value to the public.

The IT Department also works with all City departments and divisions to support enterprise business systems such as Geographic Information System (GIS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), public safety systems, e-Government land management, and business licensing.
