City Website Sports a New Look
As of the first of the year, the City of Brentwood has changed the look and contents of its website. The goal is to provide the user with as
much information as we can about Brentwood. Although, this is an ongoing process, the current site already contains a wealth of informa-
tion.

From the homepage (www.ci.brentwood.ca.us), you can look up the Municipal Code, get passport information, look up the city depart-
ments, phone numbers, contact us using e-mail, and much more. By clicking on the Table of Contents, you can get an overview of the entire
website. This is a good place to start if you are having a hard time finding what you’re looking for, or you can always use the Search feature of
the website. The City Department pages were developed to reflect the City’s organizational chart. We felt this was the best way to navigate
through the maze of web pages.

Donna Grilli, a Los Medanos student, who is completing an internship with the City, has been instrumental in the development of the City’s
website. Donna continues to update, make changes and corrections on a daily basis. We welcome your suggestions or comments. You can
e-mail them to us at webmaster@ci.brentwood.ca.us.

We are currently working on the Economic GIS for the web. This will allow Internet users to obtain information on parcels, locations, and
photos of businesses in Brentwood. The City is committed to using the Internet to allow Brentwood citizens and visitors the ability to access
a variety of information concerning the City.

                                                                            2
