Cities which have Web pages autonomous to the public sector:

Autonomous city sites, with corporate/business sponsorship: Chamber of Commerce sites/business sites with official city content: Entirely private sector website, no official participation:
Here are my notes and comments about each of these sites.


===========
Palo Alto

URL: http://www.city.palo-alto.ca.us/home.html

This seems to be the most well developed.  It appears exclusively to be a public sector project.

===========
Burlingame

URL: http://www.spectrumnet.com/~spectrum/citygov/citygov.html

This City page is also very well developed.  It appears  closely associated with a private sector site called "Burlingame online" which won a "cool site of the day" award in June.  I see consistent links between the public and the private pages, though there remains a clear demarcation.


==========
Belmont

URL: http://www.belmont.gov/ 

Note the incorrect use of the *.gov domain name [gov is reserved for federal agencies].  This site appears to entirely be public sector.


==========
Brisbane

URL: http://tcomeng.com/cities/brisbane/index.html 

Entirely public sector.
=========
Berkeley

http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/  

Run by InBerkeley, aka "The City of Berkeley Informations Systems Mission" created in 1994 as a "public/private sector project" in cooperation with UC Berkely and Sun Microsystems

========
San Francisco

http://www.well.com/user/ctywatch/  Run by the City owned government access cable TV channel 54, by Citywatch a nongovenmental nonprofit organization.

=========
Mountain View

http://www.abag.ca.gov/abag/local_gov/city/mt_view/mt_view.html  

Run by the City, including links to private sites in the City.

=========
Santa Cruz

http://www.cruzio.com/~citysc/cc/index.html  

The Santa Cruz official city page appears as a small part of the larger cruzio network, an apparently "for profit" community based Internet Serivce Provider.

=========
Hayward

http://www.hitechdigital.com/ct_hwd.html, a reletively small page which is a subpage on Hightech Digital & Electronics webpage.


=========
Los Gatos

http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/los_gatos/  

Los Gatos, note the domain name registered privately, contrary to the RFC1480.  No official city content, the site is run by a Web service seller.

=========
South San Francisco

http://tcomeng.com/cities/ssf/  

A seemingly minor page billed as "City of South San Francisco" and is run by the SSF police department.

=========
San Rafael

http://www.sbtcorp.com/srcc/srcity.html  San Rafael has a small city section as the subset of the much larger Chamber of Commerce website.

=========
Sunnyvale

http://www.svpal.org/sunnyvale/sunnyvale.html  Sunnyvale is City run.

=========
San Jose

http://www.sj-downtown.com/sjda/  

San Jose website is entirely private, with no official City content.

=========
Newark

http://infolane.com/infolane/newark/  

The Online Newark site appears to be City run, and developed with the private sector help of Infolane, which has a hypertext link at the bottom of the page to a Infolane site with regional business links.  This relationship between the public & private sector seems to most closely match Pacifica's.

========
San Carlos

http://www.abag.ca.gov/abag/local_gov/city/san_carlos/schome.html  

San Carlos website is run by the city, and is quite extensive.  It also includes tutorial information about the Internet.
