Information Technology


Chief Information Officer

The City of Woodstock Information Technology Department has combined with our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Division to implement a more proactive, data-driven strategy and ensure greater organizational efficiency. Formerly, City of Woodstock’s IT department provided internal service responding to help desk tickets, performing server maintenance, providing training, and ensuring data security. Going forward, the reorganization positions all city departments to collaborate more effectively and utilize more data in policy and decision-making.

City of Woodstock IT leverages technology to improve the delivery of city services and enhance the overall quality of life for our residents. IT works closely with the city's leadership team and all employees to achieve shared goals and provide the best possible experience for the people of Woodstock.

The department promotes data-driven decision making for city staff and elected officials, such as server upgrades, full implementation of ArcGIS Online and Field Maps, creation of The Data Hub (an open data portal), and an internal UAV/Drone Program with trained FAA-certified pilots. Staff also contributes to Smart Woodstock, the city’s Internet of Things (IoT) technology initiative that developed and adopted a Master Plan for Smart technology in future city projects.
