Purchasing - Doing Business with the City

Purchasing within the City is decentralized, which allows each department to purchase supplies directly.  The City's purchasing ordinance and purchasing policy is set by the City Council and is implemented by the Finance Director (Chief Purchasing Officer) and Financial Services Manager (Purchasing Official).  The administration of capital projects, including bidding and awarding of contracts, is centralized in the City's Public Works Department, which you can email or contact by phone at 707.428.7485.

For more information regarding the purchasing ordinance and policy, contact Wade Brown, Financial Services Manager and City Purchasing Official or contact by phone at 707.428.7596
