Message from the City Manager

Welcome to the City of Mountain View!

As the city manager, my job is to ensure that the City maintains services, programs and facilities that meet the needs of the community in a fiscally responsible manner. I, and our City employees, take special pride in all the work that we do. Here, neighborhoods are built and maintained with residents in mind, services are designed to meet the needs of a diverse populace, and businesses find a welcoming home.

Under the leadership of the City Council, the employees of Mountain View work hard every day with our organizational values in mind:

        • Provide Exceptional Service
        • Act With Integrity
        • Treat Others with Respect

Whether you are a resident, a visitor, or an employee at a local business, I hope you will take the time to enjoy all that Mountain View has to offer. And if the Office of the City Manager can be of assistance to you, don’t hesitate to contact us via the links and/or number below.

Daniel H. Rich, City Manager
