General Services

The General Services Division includes administrative services for the Property Management Department, as well as management of utility and mineral contracts.


The Administrative Services Section oversees fiscal and administrative responsibilities, including budget, human resources, payroll, revenue, service contracts compliance, asset management and purchasing.

The Mineral Management Section, which moved from the Planning and Development Department, manages the city's natural gas leases and performs other services related to the city's natural gas assets. The cost of this section is reimbursed via gas lease royalty revenues.

The Utility Administration Section manages the city's conservation initiatives, negotiates the electricity contract for all departments, acts as the liaison between departments and its retail electric provider, negotiates and oversees the city's franchise agreements with utility companies that use city rights-of-way, and addresses issues with non-franchised utilities that use the city's rights-of-way.
