Budget Workshop May 2012
The Information Technology Department (ITD) provides technology services, support and guidance to City departments as well as a growing community of residents, businesses, and visitors within the City of Modesto. Despite the current economic challenges, ITD has succeeded in providing diverse technologies to this growing user population. Our team of technical staff, project managers and student interns are among the best in the industry. Their creativity and hard work has been recognized nationally and will continue to transform the City of Modesto’s technology infrastructure and provide for future innovations. As we look forward, ITD will continue to provide an opportunity to drive innovation. The need for increased efficiencies has created a much greater sense of openness and opportunities to reduce cost, partner with others and generate revenue
