Information Technology


Technology has become a part of our everyday lives, shaping the way we act and think. The future of our society depends in large measure on how well we speak and think the language of technology, and how we use the tools of technology. We must prepare our city for a world in which technology is not something that we “do” but an essential part of how we think.


The vision of the Information Technology Department is to make the city government accessible to the Petersburg community at all times by integrating information technology in the operations of the city government. 


Our mission is to manage, coordinate, and facilitate the use of information technology across all city departments and agencies, in order to make the organization responsive to the needs of citizens and businesses. We will do this by:

  • Enabling city employees to provide quality services effectively and efficiently to the Petersburg community
  • Delivering 24/7 information and electronic services ubiquitously to the Petersburg community
