Working at the City

"While our focus is on meeting the needs of our City, our success is driven by our dedicated people."

Our team strives to achieve the City’s vision for the future and serve the community with essential local services such as clean water, sewer systems, parks and recreation and fire protection.

We do it by building a diverse team of caring coworkers and innovative roll-up-your-sleevers who are determined to make a difference.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a safe, respectful and inclusive workplace where our employees are comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work.

We believe the best work is possible when we take care of our employees and their well-being. We offer our employees a meaningful Total Rewards package including ongoing learning and development opportunities, competitive compensation, health and well-being programs and service awards.

Our approach is based on our values

Respect | Collaboration | Integrity | Service | Stewardship

These values are at the heart of our culture; we put them into action every day – in our interactions with each other, our patrons and the community – to create a safe and healthy environment where we can all contribute our very best.
