Today's Bay Area is arguably the most competitive business environment in the United States. We get that. A "business friendly" location isn't enough; you need a partner who shares your goals. Luckily, you picked Hayward.
Chances are, you're not here to hang out. When you visit our website, you're trying to get something done, like report graffiti, pay your water bill or find out how to get a building permit. We're working hard to make the services we provide accessible, understandable and easy to use.
Our council-manager form of government combines the strong civic leadership of elected officials with the strong managerial experience of an appointed city manager. Beyond all else, we are a service organization, and we are here to serve you, the public. We're doing our part to drive Hayward forward.
We need everyone's involvement to protect and strengthen Hayward’s environment. This site is a one-stop shop for the resources you need to go green at home, at work, and in your community. Thank you for everything you do to keep Hayward great for future generations!
